Wow

Type 055 doing was it was designed and built to do

Also China needs practice formation sailing with a full strength carrier strike group with SSN and tankers

A lot of moving parts and lots can go wrong

Practice makes perfect
They are not actually praticing formation, they are actually hiding from typhoon

Is this from a reconnaissance satellite, it looks like the CV is being tracked from above wherever it goes
I believe this was taken by a commercial satellite, and they are not being tracked, since there are no water ripples, the ships were anchored away from docks to avoid typhoon

If the Chinese leadership is not outright assuming that their forces are being monitored in almost real time they are doing something very wrong.

The fifth Type 055 (Renhai-class) destroyer on order for the People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) has been launched at the Jiangnan Changxingdao shipyard near Shanghai.

Work is now continuing in the fitting-out basin, as shown in commercial satellite imagery captured on 18 September.

The launch was not covered by official Chinese media but the satellite imagery shows that it occurred between 7 and 18 September, with some Chinese social media sites claiming that it took place on 12 September.

Displacing more than 10,000 tonnes, the Type 055 is the largest destroyer built for the PLAN. Its vertical launch system (VLS) comprises 112 cells from which surface-to-air, anti-ship, anti-submarine, and land-attack missiles can be launched.
