They can mass produce SSNs. They are not completely happy with their designs to throw that much money at it at the moment. But when they are, these will come out like sausages.
Chinese call mass production..'like dumplings [ in water][gouzi]', not sausages as in the West. When you eat dumplings you throw a few in at the smae time! Dumpings float when ready [cooked]. Ships launched when ready.

1950-1989 means a fourty years period.

For comparison, China had speeded up their building of navy surface combatant ships significantly since 2005. It had built 3(take Liaoning for one, or, one vessel in 6 years and at least 2 shipyards capable of that) carrier in 18 years(2005-2023), 8 cruisers in 9 years(055s, 2015-2023), 29 destroyers in 11 years(4 052Cs and 25 052Ds, 2005-2022), 3 LHD in 6 years(075s, 2018-2023), 104 frigates in 18 years(054As and 056/056As, 2005-2022).

So I think it's VERY possible for PLAN to catch up with the USN's building records during 1950-1989 in most surface combatant ships during 2005-2044 (except the carrier vessels, they are really too expensive and difficult to build, I don't think it possible for China to build another 12 vessels by 2044).
well we actually have table comparing Chinese navy build up vs US inventory from 2005 onward courtesy of Congressional report on China naval modernization Here it is starting from page 8,9,10. I just happen to read the latest congressional report

They don't need the perfect design. Just crank out more to achieve the shock effect.

And now please back to the topic! SSBN mass production and 003‘s Long way to go is irrelevant to the topic, who’s is the Type 055 DDG.

Nope,3 arrays,different place,can’t be

By "different place" I assume you are referring to the 055 mockup in Wuhan. That Wuhan mockup is for integrating sensors – to make sure they don't interfere with each other. It's not intended to test the radar performance.

That rig in your image is a known radar testing platform for 055. Similar rigs were made for 052C's panels. It has nothing to do with a future frigate.
