The 055 there is gone, replaced by 052D getting its sonar fitted to its bow bulb. One of the superstructures next to it is getting painted and that's for a large commercial ship.

Do you know for how long that 052D will stay there?

Not very long. The Type 055 that was there before didn't stay long either.

The white superstructure next to the 052D is probably for the super huge container ship on the dry dock beside it. Look how big that ship is that even the carrier is literally dwarfed by it.

don't speak about drydock nr. 3; the suspectet carrier should be in drydock nr. 4 at the back side

Two days ago the first blurred image showing the first modules of the future #PLAN Type 003 aircraft carrier in the drydock no. 4 at the Jiangnan Shipyard in Shanghai were posted ... here are much clearer ones.

I dont know if its my impresssion or not, but i cant locate the modules seen previously in older photos before they were moved (see photo below) and the photos in the new location. Seems to me that they are different. What do you think?

Yes, i know that those are supposedly the modules that were transfered. Its just that seeing from both satelite photos, i cant seem to locate those that were seen in december 2019 in the new area today. Compare the 2 photos.
