no, none of them are fully accurate.
interesting ..... I thought 055 would have 2x CIWS 1130 and 2x HHQ-10 (24 tube)
Actually, why I think they have build a roof over the hull is to give some form of protection from the coming winter and not delay the build schedule because of weather,since there might be a second hull coming. Winter in Dalian after all is extreme.? No... my rhetorical question was to say that the presence of a roof or lack of roof is not important.
I would not be at all surprised if 055 displaces 12,0000+ tons and only has 96 VLS. The 055 VLS is larger than the Mk. 41 VLS on the Arleigh Burke class, and AB Flight III is up around 10,000 tons and we know that ship is considered too small with no potential for future growth, compromised AMDR, and who knows what else.I am begining to think Blitzo is right, that this thing will certainly be in the 12000 tonne and above weight class. Look at the size of the bow in comparison to the two 052D which is closer to the camera,I for one will be very disappointed if it carries only 96 to 112 VLS tubes as reported.
