If I'm not mistaken, then this is the first image not only clearly showing Z-8 (Z-8CJ ?) but even more that many - I see eight - ship-borne transport helicopters on deck of the first Type 075 LHD at Hainan.

These 3 ships are enough to boast PLAN overall strength by 10%.

The tense situation in SCS haste the 3 ships into faster commissioning pace.
I think one more 055 will commission into PLAN later this year. That will bring 4 055 destroyer into service for 2021

09IV nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine SSBN "Long March 18", 055 Destroyer "Dalian" and 075 LHD "Hainan" came into service on 23 April 2021.

Watch the short commissioning footage!

About the SSBN, OedoSoldier mentioned "Long March No. 18" yet @Daniel808 posted as "PLANS-421"... anyone can explain this sub numbering?
The pennant number 421, the sub name CZ-18.

Not to be confused with Long March Rocket (CZ) series
