    From my limited chinese, it is translated as it is this year 3rd trial. And also the final trial and finalised (ended).

    登陆舰936-洋山号。刚结束活动,这是今年的第三次,也是最后一次试验,结束。
    @Chish, I would be careful not to make the translation as "And also the final trial and finalised (ended)." That translation gives the impression of weapon being finalized of all test and trial.

    The Chinese sentence is not grammatically complete which certainly will lead to multiple interpretation, especially the last word. Let me translate and put the missing part in bracket.
    (1) 这是今年的第三次,(2)也是最后一次试验,(3)结束。
    (1)This is the 3rd of this year, (2)it is also the last test (of this year?, or of the whole program?), (3)finish (of what?).
    Only the 1st part is crystal clear, the 2nd and 3rd parts are all incomplete and subjected to interpretation.
