The superstructure seems to be shaped like the character 桂, what's that got to do with Guangxi province?

Design is cool though, better than 031 imo.

Because the official abbreviation of Guangxi Province is 桂, like how the abbreviation of Guangdong is 粤 and the abbreviation of Shanghai is 沪. The city of 桂林 was historically the provincial capital, which is where the abbreviation comes from.

2 075s being fitted out in Shanghai with a 071 nearby, not sure if this is the most recent pic though. Don't know how to clear away the map overlay, sorry.

If you'd go back just one page in this thread, you'd realise the first two 075s are now operational and only one is left still on trials. I dont mean to dunk on newish members but its worth checking threads and current status of info before posting vastly outdated stuff. No offense.
