Type 055 DDG Large Destroyer Thread

well the picture
shows three units of Type 055 in Shanghai, so I would've thought (at least) one had sailed there from Dalian
One from Dalian is in the fitting dock, and the other went into a separate dry dock in Dalian.

All three or four units in Shanghai would have to be Jiangnan's.

I get this feeling 2019 might see three 055 commissions.

Wow wow just wow

The question really is when was the 3rd Type 055 launched at JNCX and why didnt anyone catch it

I mean it’s the biggest warship in PLAN for heavens sake ?

Looking at the construction rates and earlier photos 3rd unit is possible however I don’t think there’s 4

No way they launched 3 units from JNCX in 2018, 2nd one came in April and 3rd probably end of 2018

Those satellites photos don’t show anymore than 1 under construction the other halls are building Type 052DL

So 5 units in total 3 x JNCX and 2 x DL

I'm surprised if they launched 3 055s at JN already.

The photo seems like it could be either doctored or some kind of time lapse
