    I got to say, I don't understand the point of the bow. That double bow, anyone knowledgeable explain the pros and cons please.

    How can it be triple the cost of a 11,000t+ 055!?!?!

    Removing the non per-unit oriented costs gives us a hull price of around $2.7B. Which is around the same cost as the Australian program for the same ship. Have in mind that said costs are said to be inclusive as regards to operations and maintenance over the life of the ships.

    Certainly not cheap, but not outrageously so.

    what on Earth your sentence

    "Have in mind that said costs are said to be inclusive as regards to operations and maintenance over the life of the ships."

    is supposed to mean?!

    have you ever read about "$53.2 billion for the construction of ships"
    #180
    or you trying to spin here?!

    now they say (https://flotprom.ru/2019/ФорумАрмия40/) her model was shown in a closed part of Army 2019 exhibition

    ("the source wouldn't say why the model was shown in a closed part of the exhibition"
    LOL it's kind of cool)

    allegedly the waterline Hull length and shape can be kept optimized for higher speed and/or lower fuel consumption due to lower wave drag. all without having to have the whole ship as long, meaning savings in weight.

    "... an unusual looking sharp protrusion out from the bow near the water level.
    "This simply extends the length of the vessel at the waterline, improving wave resistance without increasing the dimensions of the ship," the source said."

    It's a similar idea to that French frigate on the previous page, though perhaps a bit cruder (it has less internal volume in the bow, but likely presents less of a challenge to keep water from washing over the bow in heavy seas, with essentially a conventional bow geometry set further back). In both cases you get more water line length per length over all, for lower drag.

    at that time the Type 055 armament was unknown, so I used 128 tubes
