Although personally I would like to see it launch this year but unfortunately the delay due to covid lockdown is very severe.

Again ... there is no delay, at least not a major one. and this was in fact a logical consequence alone based on comparing construction of 002 and 003 that a launch already this year is unlikely.

It feels that way. In particularly, no further launch or commissioning of Type 052D, Type 055, Type 075. Maybe there is some delay due to covid lockdown but hopefully not very severe.

China's navy ships building program is strictly following the five-year-plan (FYP). The last FYP was the 13th FYP (2016 to 2020); the current one was the 14th FYP (2021 to 2025). The reason we don't see much launch or commissioning of large combat ships in 2021 is because the major tasks assigned by the 13th FYP have been completed by 2020 or early 2021; while the new tasks initiated by the 14th FYP was still in the baby-stage, e.g. just start the steel cutting.

All ships under Contracts for type 052D, type 055 X 8 and type 075 X 3 have been launched. So what is the delay?

New contracts have not been confirmed, other than the additional 20 units of type 054A++.

However, the progress is slower than expected. China is battling covid every day. There is certainly a delay, which is expected. Not only 003 but the other ships too.

No, at least not certainly since we don't know the original schedule ... by the way, here's a new and recent image:

China is battling COVID-19 every day? Did you get that impression from CNN or Bloomberg? For your information, yesterday the whole of China has got 10 cases of local infection, and 24 imported cases (from overseas travellers entering China.)

And hardly any COVID-19 cases in the last 12 months in Dalian and Shanghai where PLA navy aircraft carrier 003, type 075 and type 052D are built.

While the case is few, China must test lots of people every day with PCR tests which is expensive. More money spent on tests means less money spent on defense.

Senseless discussion! Do you know what financial budget allocation is all about?
