    The 075 LHD is a lot more versatile ship than the 071 LPD for PLAN, which lacks forward naval bases, and especially at times when large scale amphibious operation (that requires multiple LHDs/LPDs working together) far from home is unlikely, and MOOTW is important. They could build as many 075 as the 071, or more.

    They need to keep up the production of helicopters nonetheless to make full use of it. Also programs for the equivalent of V-22, CH-53 and F-35B would immensely boost both the capability and versatility of these LPDs, there is great potential in them if these programs actually exist.

    Basically a diagonal arrangement, 2 CIWS 2 RAM, make sure whichever side there are 1 CIWS 1 RAM can be used.

    Just like this:

    CIWS front RAM
    RAM end CIWS

    How come the type 075 is not as big as the Wasp or the Italian version? Why are they waiting for the type 075A before they implement the bigger design? This is much like the type 071A and the type 052DL, when they would implement the smaller design for the first batch and the go for for the extended version in the second batch.

    Type 075 and Wasp class are very similar in dimension and tonnage , about 250m long and 40k tons

    Not sure where did you come up with that statement

    Are you sure? At least by this comparison it seems indeed smaller!?

    Do we reliably know the ballpark length and tonnage of the 075? Wasp and Izumo can be found here:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wasp-class_amphibious_assault_ship
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Izumo-class_multi-purpose_operation_destroyer

    Wasp (843ft, 40,500T) is slightly longer but much heavier than Izumo (814ft, 27,000T). If the order of that picture suggests the opposite, it's wrong right off the bat. If 075 is >800 feet, ~40,000T, then it is Wasp-sized and much larger but similarly-lengthed to Izumo.

    It appears they’re almost exactly same size as the Wasp. Whether why they didn’t choose to make them as large as the newer America class, I have no idea, but it might be to facilitate building more.

    There’s no evidence towards a 2nd batch or alternate designs. I think very early on, someone speculated that some 075 would be built without well deck as helicopter carrying destroyers only (which would have made their weight more in line with the Japanese Izumo), but we can see that the current one has a well deck.
