    Yes, that is essentially what the CGI seems to be showing.

    no, none of them are fully accurate.

    the crease of the ship is lower than the main deck. the hull kind of resembles the geometry of the Italian FREMM class extended, based on what we can see of 055 so far

    If that CGI is accurate I think we are looking at 128 VLS cells and a new, larger sonar array....

    dumb question: are you comparing to #1 055, or some other ship (like Type 052D)??

    I'm looking at the sideways arrangement of the rear VLS on the #1 055 along with what appears to be a fairly large-sized bow sonar dome.

    interesting ..... I thought 055 would have 2x CIWS 1130 and 2x HHQ-10 (24 tube)

    Actually, why I think they have build a roof over the hull is to give some form of protection from the coming winter and not delay the build schedule because of weather,since there might be a second hull coming. Winter in Dalian after all is extreme.

    I would not be at all surprised if 055 displaces 12,0000+ tons and only has 96 VLS. The 055 VLS is larger than the Mk. 41 VLS on the Arleigh Burke class, and AB Flight III is up around 10,000 tons and we know that ship is considered too small with no potential for future growth, compromised AMDR, and who knows what else.

    055 as an enlarged but (in its initial form) technologically conservative evolution from 052D, with robust future growth potential, is undoubtedly partly informed by PLAN's desire to avoid the various pitfalls that USN has encountered in the 21st century, most obviously the Zumwalt -> Flight III -> Future Surface Combatant saga.
