Isn't it an old image from several years ago, taken around the same time as the one below?

So far, we have seen neither 055s nor 052Ds launching land attack cruise missiles from their VLSs. Not sure why.

We know that such a missile exists and it should be in advanced stages of development if not already in service.

I expect it is similar to the case of the VL ASROC Yu-8 on 054A from many years ago, where it was rumoured to be in service for many years, but it took a long time for the PLAN to actually release an image of it.

I.e. general PLA opsec shenanigans.

Won't be hard to make one. It will be practically a single stage YJ-18 without the supersonic separator stage. I also think it's possible to make one that will launch using the smaller 7 meter VLS, which can enable all the cells of the 052D, and even if the 054B would use the U-VLS.
