with the launch of the Type 071E LPD this would make it the most widely produced LPD after the San Antonio Class and LX(R) in modern era

Austin Class 13 units

eventually USN will add 13 x LX(R) to give 26 x San Antonio hulls

Taking on relief supplies for Tonga. Note the deck opening and the use of the deck crane, both of which are a rare sight.

These ships are huge... hard to see on a picture of them alone on the sea but from that perspective it's impressive.

When I’m wandering around regarding Type 071 LPD.

I found a rumour that the first two of third batch (ninth & tenth) of Type 071 LPD already started construction in HDZH Shipyard, and expected to be launched in autumn & winter this year.

Both will be named PLANS Alishan (LPD-990) and PLANS Shiwandashan (LPD-995)

Can you provide more details about this rumor? Its source and how credible it is.
