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.
