Is there a ceremonial date coming up?
Both of the last 052 and 055 have been painted, and are waiting for one, most probably.

thats exactly 8 years since 1st x Type 052D was launched in 30th August 2012 I remember it well like yesterday

exactly 8 years on JNCX and DL have been pumping hard

18 x Type 052D/L from JNCX
and 9 x Type 052D/L from DL

thats a combined rate of over 3 units per year
