    Here in this estimation via the front view it is even more obvious ... and if the information (via wiki) of 28m in the Type 071 is correct, then this would correspond to a beam of 33.50 / 33.60 m for the Type 075.

    A beam of >30m is definitely reasonable to me, ranging from 33 to 30m at the widest point imo. That would certainly be in good company alongside the beam of many other LHDs in the world (Wasp/America, Mistral, Juan Carlos/Canberra)

    Hope it doesn’t become another white elephant and sail around with no rotary wing

    China need to establish a proper naval aviation equipped with proper helicopters and modern ones not those stupid vintage 1960s Z8 with the big thick black nose cones

    Hudong Zhonghua is on the lower left corner and Jiangnan Shipyard is on the upper right corner.
