Again some news from the Hudong-Zhonghua Shipyard, where the Type 075 LHDs are built and fitted out: Allegedly the lead vessel (no. 01) was transferred to another shipyard or facility nearby.

But could it also be simply its second trail?

HDZ has another facility at Changxing island, where they are currently building LNG carriers which will be the world's biggest, and LNG powered containerships, like more of those CMA CGN containersihps. It should not be that far from where Jiangnan Shipyard is. Sometimes in the past, this facility was used for work with the Type 071s.

To be honest, I feel like the type 075 looks kinda ugly. The superstructure seems too sharp with not enough curves and all the different platforms jutting out the side look like pimples

As the founding father of modern China once said, it doesn't matter if a cat is black or white, as long as it catches the mice, well then it is a good cat. I'll leave it at that.

They have painted part of the forward mast black (see circled part), likely done for cosmetic reasons to make soot buildup less obvious.
In addition to concealing soot buildup, black paint improves the cooling of the surface, due to being a better radiator.
