    That Yagi antenna on the back is a nice touch. It brings it that retro-70's vibe.

    to cut cost, you have to balance between what you like and what you need

    Weibo sources say the 21st 052D destroyer launched yesterday. I'm not sure about how credible it is since no photo has come out yet. anyways, sooner or later.

    China spares no expense, it is simply a limit of their technology.

    When 2016 I saw the mirage III still working on Charles De Gaulle, it brings it that retro-70's vibe.

    A Mirage III looks nothing like an SEM. One is Delta Wing and the other is Swept Wing.

    052D/052DL are said to be built as many as 32 in total and seems all will be commissioned by 2025. the existence of 052E destroyer and 054B frigate are still unknown. 055A is said to be in design phase.

    Extremely impressive buildup.Chinese SSN programme,Carrier programme,Type 55 cruiser and 5th gen fighters are the 4 biggest threat to india in the near future with j20 and SSN being the biggest threat.Hopefully SSN numbers remain manageably low and J20 takes a decade to mature.

    Can you quote or link your source?
    I thought there was a planned fleet of 26 ships for 052d.

    just speculation. the total number varies between 25~32. years ago, the 24th was long believed to be the last one by many "credible" sources until the 25th came out. so it really baffles me as well. the only credible clues are satellite images or candid shots. If 052E does exist, 26 is plausible. if 052E does not exist, 28~32 is more believable.
