    Let get this straight, these ships are intended to carry PLA Marine Corps Task Forces overseas, and make no mistake, the PLA MC is already growing in size not for fun but rather to prepare for Expeditionary format. Type 075 is designed just for that along with 071. While 075 will be able to provide an air-wing to the Task Force on board. This means that in the next decade, PRC will be able to deploy Quick Reaction Forces and be a truly global player.

    I highly doubt that the main purpose of the type 075 is ASW, if it was the case then they could have built something much cheaper & much more effective that could be aqquired in much greater numbers, they could have just built a cheap 8k tonne dedicated ASW destroyer, it would carry 6 helicopters, 4 medium range cruise missiles, HQ-10 & a 76mm gun.

    it is said that the 071 is about as cheap as the 054A, so most likely this kind of a ASW DDG would be as cheap as that because it would lack any major armaments.

    Panels attached near the Type 726-1 ESM unit. They look like AESA type arrays, but these are not radars. More likely they are high speed digital data communication units similar to those you see with base stations, with MIMO and such. Closest to what I can think these arrays are used for is CEC or Cooperative Engagement Capability with other ships (sharing sensor information) and with aircraft, drones and helicopters back and forth. CEC with helicopters would make sense if the helicopter would show a round type blister underneath its belly, just like that naval Z-20 in another thread.

    The Type 726-1 ESM unit looks a bit different from the latest ones placed on the Type 056A and 052D batches. Possibly yet again a new revision.

    More high-resolution images. Some of these may not be up-to-date.

    Oh well ... :)

    Even if found at the Chinese Top81-Forum, this image is surely again from Jane's via Sean O'Connor.
    Taken on 29th October this year, it shows not only the impressive progress on the second Type 075 LHD's construction but also what appears to be the first module of the third hull.

    Interesting so we will see 2 units side by side

    and the Type 071E will follow after the second launch

    They will probably build 8 type 075 for their versatility, before the type 071E.
