    I tend to think that the PLAN does things in pairs. If there are five different variants, then there should be 5 pairs.

    Great Post.

    Totoro, you taught me some very good lessons regarding SSN.

    Thank you,

    What I have found to be new:
    1. Two protrusions at the backend of the top of the sail. It was one on the 09IV last time.
    2. One line of blowholes instead of three last time.
    3. The very aft gap is less than half than previous 09IV.

    Are you sure? Perhaps from my perspective is the same two protrusions. It's just that at that angle make the two protrusions look as one.

    The difference are clearly visible. What is the designation for this? 094G?

    Not sure if designation is known at this time. Interesting thing is that satellite imagery of Huludao shipyard have suggested for some time not only 5 09iv subs but perhaps as many as six being built.

    Certainly, with a new variant, it is plausible PLAN went for two boats of said variant.

    "six being built"? do you mean 094 ?. I thought PLAN had moved on to 095/096
