That is one huge elevator they have at the end. Is there a second elevator for 075?

I believe this is the third unit.

@asif iqbal, as you can see from the side view of the bridge (second picture above from @by78) , while there are open air walk space to either sides of the bridge, there is none in front.

So @by78 's assertion that it was taken in the bridge or on the roof is correct.

From Lyle Goldstein blog suggestion that LPD has ASW as secondary role interesting. Well the can carry many helicopters including ASW heli
It should be obvious that any helo carriers will have significant role in asw, since you can carry 20 asw helicopters and drones on there.

I actually like the idea of using the helicopters for asw and sar roles rather than to just air drop marines. Put 075 east of Taiwan and it gives you a lot of additional aerial assets to assist rest of the fleet. Keep in mind that they have started to operate ka31s on there. They can help a fleet to track sea skimmers, surface warships and enemy aircraft.

I would be curious when you have this many platforms, which one would take the initiative of going through the data and triangulating the submarines. You could have mpas doing it or carrier or 075 or 055 or 093. A lot of choices there.

In general, I think plan is just learning about what it can do with 075. So far, I haven't seen them operating a really large fleet on there. Once z20f production ramps up, I would expect a combination of z8, z18, z20 and ka31s on there. Depending on the mission, they could have more asw helicopter or more assault helicopter or more transport helicopter or more aew helicopter. Increasing the size of naval air wing is always a good thing.

And as time goes on, we will see more drone variants and such. We are still at a very early stage in terms of seeing how they plan to utilize 075s.
