Doesn't have IEPS or is based on the Arleigh Burke class. For me IEPS, advanced radars and LO conscious Hull design would constitute as being future ready. I am very aware of the low offensive capability of the Daring class.
It might be IEPS, but with 40MW of total alternator capacity, it won't have loads to redirect to other functions.
LO isnt everything. For ships where weight isnt as big a deal as on aircraft, EW is more of a focus.
Furthermore, future proofing means allowances for integration of newer tech down the line, but I can't think of a way that Daring could ever carry LACM, BMD etc in the future. Even slyver would upgrade to only a specific class of missiles.
Mk41, otoh, would have been a much better choice.
You should stop going off topic now.
This is the 055 thread, not 'this is my dream ship' thread.

But UK has the technology for IEPS. That is a big deal.
Oh wait...I'm going off-topic ?! Nope. Lol. That's cute. I'm committed to seeing that the thread remains on-topic , like any other. Thanks but no thanks.

Hypothesis.

Small bar shaped radars above the bridge wing and at the back of the mast, with one in front over the CIWS (not seen) and the other over on top of the bridge wing on the other side, is a four set fixed faced version of the SR2410C search radar. Or you can look at it vice versa, the SR2410C is the budget rotating single faced version of the navigation and surface scanning radars on the 055.

No, yoy are both wrong...

This is the first Type 054A/P for Pakistan, under construction at Hudong in Shanghai!
This isn't hudong.
The first photo clearly shows jiangnan shipyard's newly dredged area with blurred out 002 construction drydock..

No, thats 055 #8.
Notice the square vls cut out.
Sure, but where is the shipyard at? For the bottom picture, the shipyard doesn't look like anything in Jiangnan (Changxing) shipyard. It looks to me like one of those destroyer yards in Dalian shipyard which built and launched the first three 052D in Dalian.
