    Using it to ram something is a very bad idea, no point in giving anyone else a close up look at it. Also unsure whether stealth treated hull would hold up that well during ramming. A coast guard ship with reinforced bow is better.

    The benefits of making a bigger ship is in firepower and sensor capability. If the PLA fleet destroyer is significantly larger than a potential rival’s fleet destroyers, it will be able to outspot, outgun and defend itself better across the board.

    any photos of the 5th x Type 055?

    must be from JNCX

    DL won't get the 2 x Type 055 out till next year

    and JNCX isn't close to launching a 6th

    so by the looks of it its only 1 x Type 055 launch in 2019

    there was 2 simultaneously launched from DL last year

    and 1 from JNCX in 2017, 1 in 2018 we can conclude 1 year per build from JNCX

    and also 1 year and a bit longer from DL

    so in 2019 we may get 3 launches, 2 from DL and 1 from JNCX

    2020 we will see 8 x Type 055 in the water

    in conclusion thats 8 launches in 3 years from 2 shipyards or 2.66 per year

    prediction to 2025 will add another 12 + 8= 20 x Type 055 by middle of next decade

    La chantier naval Jiangnan Changxing à Shanghai a mis à l'eau cet après midi un autre destroyer Type 055. Il s'agit du 5e de série. Ici en photo le 2e de classe portant à priori le nom de "Lhassa", chef-lieu du Tibet.

    The 5th Type 055 should be inside the Jiangnan fitting pool. That's probably why we don't have pics of it. Once 101 or 102 leaves the fitting pier outside, this one will come out and take its place there. Would be much easier to photograph then.

    Considering average keel laying to launch times, its likely all 4( 2 052dg + 2 055) of those ships being assembled will be launched before 2020 end.
    Basically all 8(?) planned 055 will be in water before 2020 ends.

    That looks like another destroyer in the processing dock that's all done about to leave the yard on the upper corner.
