Type 075 LHD discussion

These LHD's are getting built at such a tremendously... terrifyingly slow rate.

;)

Turkey never built such a ship they launched in 12 months

China doing it in 6 is not too surprising, Spain also did it fast with RAN two units

with modular construction and design LHD construction is normally fast

They really need to speed up the building the first batch of 8 type 075 ships.
There is no such thing as a batch of 8 type 075s. For two reasons.

1. My understanding is that most sources point to a 3 ship program (as far as known/current/outstanding contracts are concerned).
2. It is extremely easy and cheap to build a hull like this. It is extremely expensive and more time-consuming to actually bring it to full operational status (with LCACs, an aviation wing, a fully equipped marine detachment etc). We are simply witnessing the easy part here.

Well I agree with the aviation wing part, but the LCACs and marine detachment should not be that difficult, or significantly more expensive, right?
