    oooohhhh PICTURES of GUNS and MISSILES and STUFF is basically your argument-___- What are those missile types? Are the amount of the types provide tactical advantage against a near peer or peer? Are there radars installed that would allow the ship to independently track and shoot at a tactical distance against an enemy equivalence type etc. I know the answer, that's why I reemphasized the word "meaningful."

    Via LKJ86 at the PDF.

    The third from Jiangnan? You can see 052D at the fitting pool beyond. The other 052D at the lower picture is the extended "third block" version. I'll post that at the 052D thread.

    Hi all;

    I´m Juan, I´ve readed you for a while, but I didn´t write here before. I´ve tried to read all Type 055 topic (not finished still) before asking, but some question arise when deeping in the knowledge of this class of ships.

    I´ve a question, reading the excellent posts about Type 055 propulsion and taking into account the Type 055 only have TG for propulsion, and (IMHO) this scheme is not the most adequate for low speed transit; Is really the Type 055 a "fast escort carrier" ship?. If it is, can we speculate the number of CV for the PLAN following the total number of Type 055 in commission??.

    Thanks in advance!.
    J.B.

    Bots tend to be unable to ask specific, relevant or on-topic questions.

    Now, with regards to the actual question.

    1. We don't know the future order of battle for PLAN. We can - and do here - speculate on this, but at the end of the day, there is no outstanding information to make anything more than an educated guess.
    2. We cannot directly correlate the current number of ordered 055 hulls with the number of possible/probable Carrier battle groups PLAN will field in the future.

    If you want my opinion, emphasis my opinion, not meant to be taken as authority, my guess is 9 or 12 ships in an initial batch run. 9 if you have three ships per fleet, a set of three for the North Sea, another set for East Sea, and third set for South China Seas. 12 if you have 4 ships per each of the three fleets. With the carriers, I am assuming one per fleet for now, CV16 for the North Sea, CV17 for the East Sea, and CV18 for the South China seas.

    12 055 for an initial batch, but these numbers can be cut if 055A starts appearing, taking over the balance of the 055 original contracted numbers.

    Type 055 can have TAS, Bow sonar and VDS and every other ASW equipment

    but what a warship needs is a helicopter every submarine captains nightmare

    2 x Z18C and a rotary UAV should be on every Type 055

    the sheer lack of rotary wing on PLAN warships is very concerning
