Both labels are Internet invented. PLAN doesn't use 'gai'. The extended variant is already the third batch improvement. The question is whether we have a fourth.
Actually they do used "G" for "gai 改". Example type 053H1G and type 053H2G frigates, and type 039G submarine.

As for type 052D, I have not seen official designation of type 052DL or 052DG yet.

@Blitzo @Deino is it time to open a new thread? it's been 1006 pages here and it's getting rather crowded

I'll do so.
A few threads could use that tbh.
