The same two ships as in the above post, but seen from the air.
Just curious have we seen pictures of type 055s firing missiles from their VLSs? I remember only scenes of the main battery, 1130 and HQ-10.
That will have to wait until new 055As come out no? I don't think they have the electric capacity for a railgun currently. Then again a fully electric 055 has a lot more than just railgun too.VLS is not the advantage here
the one advantage Type 055 will have other large destroyers is the railgun
railgun is what will define the Type 055 not the VLS
We still have that (unverified?) info that 052d are limited to 16 strike cells, while 055 is 100% full length.But perhaps the difference is small enough that whether to call them Large DDGs or CGs really is down to semantics.
