    It's certainly possible that it is 101 back for some final work, but I would've been under the impression that once it received its pennant number it would've been commissioned, and any additional "work" to be done would be related to actual naval crew learning to run the ship.

    It's certainly quite possible that some naval personnel are receiving training from the shipyard, an orientation as it were.

    The first two photos have been shared before, but they were in the form of screen captures... The last photo is a satellite update of Dalian.

    Wow

    does anyone remember the days when rumour suggested that DL will join JNCX in building Type 052D back in 2012?

    We waited and waited and always ended up being yeah end of this year we should see Type 052D under construction at DL

    Now it’s launched building simultaneously DDG and CG

    These should be launched before 2020

    I didn't see this photo earlier -- the 055 on the left we can see a hint of the pennant number 101, so looks like that ship did indeed return back to JN and so the aerial photo is a very recent one.

    Do NOT forget Submarines.

    At least 40 new submarines ( Conventional and Nuclear ) are added from 2009 to 2019 !!

    40? Mind confirm how you get this number, please?

    I know the exact number is always classified, and thus debatable. But my own number says 16 039A/B/C entered service during 2009 and 2016 (1st 039A at 2006). I can hardly imagine they got 24 SSN/SSBN during that 10 years, even we count that 032 (Qing) in.
    -- There is reason to believe since first 039A at 2006, NO more 039/039G ("Song") produced after.
    -- And you can't count Kilo: they are from Russia. Moreover, they all entered service before 2009.

    The curved sail 039B started appearing from 2016 on, production unknown. We have been seeing more and more pictures of these.
