Thanks for taking the time to clarify the production details. I'm glad that PLAN is ordering more frigates, I just don't like to count chickens before they hatch.

3rd Destroyer Division is the flotilla that has the most ships in refit. I am not just talking of the Sov 136 and 137, but the two 054 525 and 526 are also assigned to them.

A Chinese 054A shown up in the water of Penghu island.

First step to take Taiwan, penghu is a must. Taking penghu by itself is already worthy it alone.

Penghu water is too shallow for any nuclear powered subs.

As it is a lot closer to Taiwan, it can used as a staging area for further moves?

I doubt benefit of staging an attack from a shorter distance would offset giving up surprise and momentum. Especially considering now PLA's capability would have no problem launch an assault from all the way across the strait they might as well take out limited number of HVT on the island with air strike and leave it be.

worst case scenario, if unable to land on taiwan island, taking penghu island is not a bad consolation price.

They could always divert their force back if they failed to land on main island which I doubt would happen but if that's the case the chance of taking and holding penghu would be very slim and price too high. Also a 054A showing up hardly has anything to do with this.

Once penghu taken, it's defensible. All the rockets and SAM from mainland cover the entire strait. Jets and ships can come from mainland quickly for reinforcement. And penghu also have alot of Taiwanese civilians.
