    I am not saying that they are repainting their pennant numbers. I mean that over time, there is a destroyer there in the refitting area, and the pennant number changes from picture to picture. This means that over time, its not the same destroyer sitting there for a long time, but different destroyers are taking their turn over there, likely as some part of scheduled maintenance and minor refits.

    I am not sure if I have seen this picture before. It has high detail and the perspective points to something shot relatively close with a natural perspective.

    This guy is using the image as his header for his social media handle.

    The 052D on the bottom of the Dalian shipyard image is on the pier for processing outward ships. Means its done and is just awaiting for paperwork for delivery.

    What happened to the Type 055 at DL that was sitting above the dry dock after the previous launch?

    Did they lift into the dry dock and when ?

    Shame we missed it
