Let us all join the Chinese defence forum and keep posting Indians military achievements to educate the Chinese. This will be reversing psychological warfare on Chinese.

Can somebody post a link to an appropriate Chinese defence forum........thanks

How will the Type 055 stand up to Large Surface Combatant which will be procured in 2026 and enter service by 2029-30?

Impressive ! These "destroyers" are in facts cruisers.
China navy will superseed US navy in a few years. Except, for now, on carriers and SSN.

Not possible before 2050.
US aircraft carriers group can rely on her military bases all over the world while Chinese has serious logistic problem if they decide to send their navy 3000km away.

The best we can say about Chinese navy is: they are narrowing the existing HUGE GAP between them and US navy.

#8 Type 055 is about to be launched from dalian shipyard.
The #25 type 052d next to it probably will be launched within the next month or so( going by previous construction schedules of 052d ships at dalian), which'll bring us to the end of announced destroyer contruction lines.

Since the original type 055 is being said to be limited to 8 units, the next in line will be an upgraded type 055a which should have a newer sensors and more refined shape to be more survivable against the upcoming LSC.

The design parameters for LSC haven't been frozen yet, but indications are present that suggest it being a zumwalt derivative, albeit with constraints on a few 'exotic' systems such as LO features to limit its price to some $4B(Note: Arleigh burke already costs $2B today, add in a new design, larger radars and propulsion, inflation and there isnt a whole lot of wiggle room left). If anymore fancy systems are requested like the AGS etc., then i'm afraid it'll face the same cost overrun and eventual Nunn-McCurdisation of numbers that happened to the zumwalt class.

The first LSC(on schedule) is supposed to be ordered in 2025, delivered in 2028 and enter service in 2030. That gives plenty of time for PLA navy to catch up, considering the fact that they have almost entirely renewed their fleet in the past decade.

Update: 28 May 2020 Dalian shipyard(bottom left)

the last two destroyers to launch soon: the 25th 052D & the 8th 055.
It's the end of an era (2010~2020).
