Didn't they just cancelled the orders for the remainder 8x 054As in exchange for the first 12x 054Bs earlier this year?
Besides, the 054B is expected to be better than the 054A in practically every metric and was meant to be the direct successor to the 054A. To put it simply, the evolution from 054A to 054B is not the same as 052D to 055.
So why would they expand 054A's production once 054B's production is already well underway?
when did this happen and where is the source for this
the 8 x Type 054A are cancelled in favour of Type 054B?
so the restart of the Type 054A will have how many units
