in the pix you clearly can see a Dock at the rear end - so LHD should be the correct designation, more then LHA

Isn't LHD a USN designation ? It doesn't really make sense to use this classification when you don't know what the ship will finally be (or will even looks like). In fact this tread classifies the class as an LHD, a LHA and an LPH.

Maybe a better solution would be to see it's Chinese classification, if the chineses use one.
In Chinese it is called 两栖攻击舰 Amphibious Assault Ship. The term LHD is for the benefit of English readers as the ship's configuration and design is similar to US Navy LHD, it is an amphibious Landing warfare ship, with Helicopters as its main assets, and has a Dock for hovercraft/landing craft/assault boats/ amphibious tanks/IFV/APC.

Just as if I write Kongzhi, you would have no idea what I wrote unless you are Chinese, but if I change to English term Confucius, only then will English reader know who he was. "Confucius" is never used in China or Chinese, in fact many Chinese have no idea who Confucius is, they only know Kongzhi, or Kongfuzhi.

If I will to use Chinese terms for all class of war ships, you might not know what they are. Example what is a Keep Away Ship/ Shoo Away Ship/ Chase Away ship 驱逐舰?

上展示的2.5万吨级出口两栖攻击舰非常相像,因此有分析认为,展示的出口型号有可能是解放军自用型号的衍生产品 [1] 。据中国军方透露,目前中国海军正在建造一艘075型两栖攻击舰,由上海沪东中华造船厂承建,第一艘船只可于2019年初下水,并于2020全面投入使用。075型两栖攻击舰和美国海军黄蜂级两栖攻击舰外型尺寸相当

Type 075 amphibious assault ship (English:Type 075 Landing Helicopter Dock LHD), is a Chinese design of large amphibious combat ships.The ship is also more in-depth specific design, which uses straight deck design, with 4 helicopter landing points, 2 lifts, in the hangar is also provided with a huge dock cabin, you can carry a certain number of domestic hovercraft.In the overall shape, 075 type amphibious assault ship and China in 2012 Abu Dhabi defense exhibition shows the 25,000-ton export amphibious assault ship is very similar, so there is analysis that the export model shows that there may be PLA self-use model derivatives [1].According to the Chinese military, the Chinese navy is currently building a Type 075 amphibious assault ship, contracted by Shanghai Hudong Zhonghua Shipyard, the first ship can be launched in early 2019, and fully put into use in 2020.Type 075 amphibious assault ship and US Navy Wasp amphibious assault ship appearance size is quite

Such a helicopter carrier can serve well to rescue shot down pilots. There have been several deployments of American helicopter carriers in the Mediterranean off the coasts of ex-Yugoslavia and North Africa to keep attack aircraft pilots morale and combat efforts at an acceptable level.

That’s why all carriers have a SAR group

LHD is amphibious assault ship

That is the primary mission

Everything else is on top off

Sorry, I don't mean SAR, I mean Tactical Recovery of Aircraft and Personnel (TRAP). It is build from personal and equipment of a Marine Expeditionary Unit on board of an amphibious assault ship.

Arround 2011 the French carrier Charles de Gaule was accompanied by an US helicopter carrier for TRAP missions for example, when from the deck of the French carrier missions over Lybia were flown.
