1.) So both operational 055s will be with the Northern Fleet (Northern Theater Command) in order to protect the two carriers?

2.) Does naming the ship "Lhasa" have anything to do with sending a message to the Tibetan Government in Exile and its supporters in India and the West?
This unit have been confirmed to be named Lhasa back in 2018, come on

By even asking that question, you are implying that perhaps Lhasa should be treated differently to any other administrative/provincial level capital which destroyers in the PLAN are named after..

You're not new here, think about your questions a bit before you ask them and the kind of response that might be incited.
You should understand in China, Significant subtext is expected In everything, even the most apparently routine of official choices. In English, the primary meaning is in the words, In Chinese, the most significant meaning is often in the context.

I understand subtext and I'm sure you and Josh Luo do as well.

I understand how "innocent" his question was, asked in a manner that if not redirected, would have a high chance of becoming a discussion if not an argument over the political status of Tibet in a thread about 055.

My reply was made in a manner to avoid using moderator status to warn him against flame baiting and to urge others to avoid taking the bait, but seeing as you've replied, let me be clear that this is one of the more flagship threads of the Navy sub forum and we're not going to tolerate those sort of political off topic discussions here.

Well, we might have a chance to see four 055s in commission before Chinese New Year 2021 (if the first two at Dalian do not run into any hurdles during their sea trials, or COVID-19 2nd wave shuts down either Shanghai or Dalian).

honestly the speed of commissioning is not important the longer the better, I would actually not like to see fast commissioning

product however is good and also satisfying
