thx
I'm only thinking about the hull at the first pic:
if this is 071 LPD and you'll compare the one central mast with the secound pic of my first posting (see below) than you'll see, its a little bit different to the art-impression of Jeff (two funnels) - so the type 071 seems to be designed like the modell
edit: or is this the hull of a new Type 054 Jiangkai FFG?

Tphuangs pic cant be a 054: The helicopter deck looks to be ~45+ meters or so in length. Just count the guard rail sections and assume they are roughly 1 meter in length for each section. Harder to measure the width since not all the guard rails are in place and you have to estimate the missing space taken into account perspective shifts into the distance but probably ~26+ meters. The pic tphung postet has a hangar and - could be - additional a "flap" (excuse my english) in the stern, so it seems to be an amphibious design (LSD - LPD ?), featured a large stern helicopter flight deck and dock to accommodate landing crafts or tanks ....

But what I now suspect is - there are two different hulls neighboured in the yard! (see first pic below)

The one (1th pic down, in the right side) looks in mast / funnel like a new FFG.
It could not be the deckhouse of the big hull on the left side, because for that the house have to be rotatet - the hangar (stern) is in opposide to the bow of the left hull.

The bigger one (1th pic down, in the left side) is rumored to become an LHD ....

; so this bigger one could be like Jeffs pic .... but with a more large stern helicopter deck, according to tphuangs pic.

Great pic tphuang. That is looking more and more like some typ of LPD. However, it also looks to be in a different location than the other pics we have seen of the one hull. Could the PLAN be (as is their practise of late) building two at once?

Or they could have moved the hull to a dry dock for fitting of underwater equipment, if the hull was in the water (I can't tell). Otherwise, it appears to be the same hull at the same stage of construction.

It could be nothing... but sometime last year, there were rumours circulating that the Chinese were interested and looking into the Endurance class LST... esp. the ballast system, and said there were talks about licensing some aspect.

It was not verified.. but looking at the this pic, got me wondering....





See some of the similarity in aft...

Indeed,even General Cao went to Singapore and have a first hand on the endurance class LSD at Changi Naval Base last year! The news was feature in Singapore Armed Force magazine 'Pioneer' in a article last yr!

Yep...could go either way...just don't have enough info. Time will tell, but the PLAN has made a habit of building these new vessels two off.

should I really become old and blind?
Arn't there also guard rails at the stern of this big hull in Shanghai?
Is it only me or arn't both stern decks - this one and the one of this great tphuang-pic - very simmilar?
I suspect, the hull down isn't so much finished - we miss the hangar and deckshouse there ....
So it seems, there ar 2 simillar designs in production - at different places :nana:
tphuang, realy hot pic! :china:
