So now all the active ship lines are exhausted completely.
052d, 055, 054a, 056a...
Wonder what'll happen now if not more ships of the same line.

For me Type 55 is a CG or a Super Destroyer.

Thats how it is supposed to be.
055 cruiser - 12000 tons
052d destroyer - 8000 tons
054a frigate - 4000 tons
056a corvette - 1500 tons

No more corvettes are required.
However frigates will still be built. Next iteration will be about 6000 tons.

Nowadays destroyers are much larger then WWII Cruisers.

INS Visakhapatnam is larger than most light cruisers of WWII, and it's a DESTROYER.

USS Zumwalt is larger than most heavy cruisers in WWII, and larger than some of the WWII Battlecruiser, and it's also a DESTROYER.

So type 055 is also a type of destroyer.:rofl:
