Nine destroyers in the water, at least 3 more in assembly hall, and several fabricated modules for two or three destroyers.

That is 8 destroyers in out-fitting and sea trial stages, 5 more under construction and one in-service destroyer #172 went back for maintenance. And also modules of aircraft carrier 003 and not less than six LCACs.

Very efficient rate of production.

We now have photographic evidence that Jiangnan Shipyard can handle 15 destroyers under construction/outfitting/modules at the same time.

At Dalian Shipbuilding, we have a picture of 5 destroyers undergoing outfitting.

But we also know that the Dalian dry dock can hold 4 additional destroyers with modules on the side.

That means between these two shipyards, China can handle 20+ destroyers under construction at any given time.:devil:

This is still based upon China's self-controlled attitude towards defense budget: 1.3% of GDP (official budget number) , or 1.9% of GDP (SIPRI estimation). A very humble & self-restrictive defense spending ratio, if compared to other countries like US, India, or even Vietnam
