Two Type 055 CG/DDG are spotted being built in Shanghai. Each with upwards of 100-120 universal VLS launchers! (Universal meaning each launcher can fire A2A, ASW or ASuW.) Meanwhile at least 13 Type 52Ds with 64 universal VLS are commissioned or being built. There are signs that there will be even more! The first Type 052D was only commissioned in 2014 so the confidence level of this ship is extremely high. Originally, analysts thought China would switch to a newer type after at most 6 Type 052Ds (there are 6 052Cs.) But with now 13 and maybe more counting, it is possible that China might be pursuing a hi-lo strategy in its DDG fleet with concurrent building of both the Type 055 as hi and the Type 052D as lo (even though the 052D by weight and number of missiles is already among the top DDGs in Asia!) This would be exceptional because no other nation has pursued multiple DDG/CG programs at the same time since the Cold War. The speed of development and deployment could mean Cold War numbers as well.
