    Call it a multipurpose, then a well deck is fine for ASW.

    If the issue was vertical lift for troop transport for the Taiwan mission I think a large tiltrotor or compound helicopter would be better.
    You would want a fast and easy to land transport.

    But if we are talking about attack helicopters the LHD is a must.
    It would reduce time to get back to base to resupply. An attack helicopter will always be impact negatively in either armor or weapons payload the further away from base it operates.

    Apparently this is what it will look like

    3 launches with 6 month intervals, so basically 18 months they launch 3 units

    HD is really turning up the tempo

    will be very impressive to build 3x 075 in 18 months

    The island design of that drawing catches my interest.

    I probably missed an earlier discussion here but I don't get why a mid-deck elevator rather than a second side one?

    I've read a few suggestions in the past, including being able to use the elevator in more difficult sea states than outboard elevators.

    I personally expected 075 would have a mast with sea eagle. I will be surprised if it had a mast/array arrangement similar to 055/003.

    That said I'm not sure how authoritative the details of the sketch are (island, elevator placement, exact flight deck geometry etc)

    Sea Eagle might still be on top of the mast to provide a search function on the S-band frequency. The squares on the mast, which might be like that of the 055's, are likely X-band radars and won't be optimized for search, but rather, fire control to serve for defensive purposes, namely to queue HQ-10 and the 1130 CIWS which I envision to be the likely defensive armament. Most important is the smaller set of squares that indicate for me the "phase 3" of PLAN's CEC's program, which has so far only appeared in the 055 and the 002. (Also quite possibly on the Liaoning 2019 refit).
