I think B there is an extended Type 052D.

I don't think the 9th Destroyer Division is getting a 052DL, so this might be the one being trialed by the 2nd Destroyer Division and based close by in Zhanjiang. This ship should be the future pennant 162 Nanning.


Did anyone note that the deck markings have been changed between November and December on the first Type 075 LHD?

The numbers have been replaced in the circle to larger ones on the right side and the top line of the triangle has been extended much closer to the island.

On this latest image of the third Type 075 LHD at the Hudong–Zhonghua Shipyard you can clearly see the vessel is painted ... looks almost ready for launch.
