    Maybe both the Americans and the Chinese reached the same conclusion after analysis? And they concluded that the most cost effective # of cells is 112 not 128?

    The US and Chinese Navies, and other navies like ROKN, JMSDF, Russian Navy, etc have their own requirements as well. I do not think there is any overarching "most cost effective" specific number.

    Flight III Burke, afaik, will have 96 VLS, the same number as Flight IIAs. I've not heard anything about it having 112 VLS or otherwise.

    Btw, what is 053C? Is it a new PLAN Destroyer or something?

    I think that was a typo on his behalf ... the 053C does not yet exist.

    And probably never will. The 053 family will be retired soon and relegated to the history books.

    I think what he meant was Type-052Cs & Type-052Ds.

    yep 128 is 2^7 it sounds cool. LOL

    So is there any value to build large ships that have no radar or any other systems, just 256/512/1024/2048/4096 VLS and accept instructions from a nearby 055? Think one such ship with 4096 missiles can cause problems to a small country?

    Purely speaking from a logical perspective, will most certainly not make any sense to do so.

    For a large fleet with multiple 055s, you have redundant electronics but not enough weapons.
