Regarding the relocation of Hudong shipyard to Changxing island............have we seen how far along this relocation has got upto?........ie is it in early stages, or nearly complete?........I presume the PLAN will want to have the 075's continue construction a.s.s.p, as they are supposed to have another 5 in the works, or completed by 2025.....excuse me if this discussion has been made here earlier.

Its already on its way. You know how fast things are constructed in China. China Speed.

I would presume that the Type 075 is the max in size that can be built in the old shipyards at the Huangpu River. The 076 or an expanded 075A would best be built in Changxing. Another advantage is that you can share the same labor pool with Jiangnan and Waigaoquiao.

Not to mention that river is getting too small and crowded. You do not want a brand new big ship to navigate there with dozens of small ships.

Two interesting screen grabs. You can see the forward deck elevator being used to lift a Z-8 from the hangar below.

The right one looks bent /s

Any guess to what th remaining two will be named? Liaoning, Shandong, Haihan are taken. Maybe JiangSu and Guangdong will be reserved for the CV003/004. I can see one of them named ShangHai.
I don’t think Shanghai will be used, my guess is that Beijing and Shanghai will be some how reserved since they two are really symbolic names if not taking Guangdong in account. Anything happens to vessels with those names would be a slap to vulnerable Chinese face.

Since you are from NYC, I will ask whether you think Americans have thicker faces to withstand the sinking of CVN-72 and CVN-73?

I agree with the rest of what you said otherwise, but seriously please don't dump such BS of "particular nation and face saving" into the subject.
