Here in this estimation via the front view it is even more obvious ... and if the information (via wiki) of 28m in the Type 071 is correct, then this would correspond to a beam of 33.50 / 33.60 m for the Type 075.

A beam of >30m is definitely reasonable to me, ranging from 33 to 30m at the widest point imo. That would certainly be in good company alongside the beam of many other LHDs in the world (Wasp/America, Mistral, Juan Carlos/Canberra)

Hope it doesn’t become another white elephant and sail around with no rotary wing

China need to establish a proper naval aviation equipped with proper helicopters and modern ones not those stupid vintage 1960s Z8 with the big thick black nose cones

Looks like they're getting ready to launch the LPD. Does this shipyard launch their ships mostly unpainted?

The 8th 071 was launched today/yesterday (depending on timezone).

It is painted, the topside decks are not.
And yes, it is normal to not paint the entire ship when launching it; painting the whole thing is typically one of the last parts of the job after fully fitting it out

The satellite image is not up to date. The 071 just launched several days ago, painted

Just something different and picking up a post from @Bltizo at the CDF:

But my feeling tells me that "those modules seem to have a lot more volume than what you'd expect for merely completing the rest of the single 075" and by a rough measurement they seem to be wider than the 075.
