    Sounds like some sort of liquid propellant gun? If EMRG is truly successful, this won't be necessary.

    There are possibly four units in the water at Jiangnan, if the second photo was taken at the same time as the first, but I'm not sure about that.

    Four units = 3x Type 055 + 1x 052D ... or even all four 055s ???

    Clearly if the two photos are of a similar date.. Then, there are 4 type 055s .. The one in the 2nd photo seems to have scaffolding on its masts while the ones in the first photo dont. If however, the photos are separated by some weeks, then the ship in the 2nd photo might just be one of the ships in the 1st photo.

    well the picture
    shows three units of Type 055 in Shanghai, so I would've thought (at least) one had sailed there from Dalian

    because I thought (wrongly?) there're just two units of Type 55 in the water in Shanghai ... in fact there're three?

    or even more? sorry if I'm behind LOL
