I tend to believe the latest rumor that PLAN has ordered 20 more 054Ds. I think PLA foresee a war (Taiwan or SCS) in this decade, so quantity matters.
Well, I would agree the risk of a war is highest in this decade, not that it is inevitable.
China has only just started to pass the US, and has not yet converted its economic heft into military capability
In comparison, the US has accumulated a much larger stockpile of advanced weapons systems over the past 30 years
But that US military advantage rapidly disappears if China has an economy twice the size of the US in 10 years time.
The rumour of 20 Type-052D and 8 Type-055 sounds realistic, given the cold war. It's roughly the same as the previous 5 year plan
