    This article on Sina made the claim based on a Feb. 2016 Jane's report (which of course is paywalled), citing a rumor from "knowledgeable individual(s)".

    How did I find out about this? LOL it's the no. 1 reference cited in the Chinese Wikipedia entry of Type 071.

    It's from a few months ago. See below, 071 no. 7 was launched last week.

    It took them 12 years to build 8 071. What's the reason for the stoppage during the late 2010's?

    I already replied to your question once. The earliest (known) claim of this decision was reported by Jane's in Feb. 2016, without citing any specific source. The link is no longer available but it has been widely referenced by Chinese media and other English sources, for example: https://defence.pk/pdf/threads/the-plan-commissions-fourth-type-071-lpd.420648/

    As it seems for now no one can be sure when exactly that decision was made. Earlier than Feb. 2016, sure, but earlier by how much? It's anybody's guess.

    No you're mistaken. I didn't mean to show or have any attitude. I was simply stating a fact and I thought it was because I forgot to attach the link I described earlier so that you ignored my previous comment (which I can't edit after a while too), hence I made another one.

    Just to be clear I'm not being passive aggressive either. You are right that I'm not doing anyone any favor and I don't intend to claim or think so.

    We're currently in the late 2010s and between 2015 and now they built them at a decent speed.
    Rather there was a period between the first 071 being launched and a period between the third and fourth ships where there was more of a pause.

    As for the reason for the pause in construction, it is probably on the Navy's side of things. Learning to use the new ship type in the first pause, and perhaps evolving requirements for the no. of LPDs needed over time.

    I doubt it would've been for any limitations in the shipbuilding process if that's what you're thinking.

    I would not say 8 units in 12 years that’s is not a build rate but also development rate

    Remember China never used LPD before

    More like 4 units in 4 years or maybe even 5 if they get another one launched in 2019

    Also 2nd and 3rd in 2010 and 2011

    That’s overall 1 per year
