    What book is that, & when was it written? More frequent communication was needed before longer range SLBMs were put on SSBNs, as their patrol areas were closer to their targets while tensions were higher, & to make sure they r safe & ready.
    It says: "ELF can provide continuous real time control capability". That's not = continuous communication at all times during current ops.

    The nr 525 from the orginial type 054 frigate class is getting a refit. Looks like weaponry and sensors are getting updated, probably to type 054A standard.
    If the first two ships gets a "A" refit the number 54A will rise to 32 ships.
    32 ships in 15 years = 2,1 ships per year, not a bad production.

    IMO, they'll invade the Pratas island- it's most distant from Taiwan & has strategic location in the North SC Sea. It also has a long airstrip & good lagoon.
    The CV-16 & CV-17 could've practiced invading other islands closer to their bases, so sending both to the SC Sea now, with current PRC-US tensions, looks like the real thing to me. To contain Taiwan & force it to renounce independence, it must be truncated at sea & in the air. Also, taking Taiwanese held islands would outflank other claimants + help monitor & control the SC Sea.
