I don't get it. The design is the design is the design. How will it LOOK different? Who/What are the sources? I don't get it.

Now here is a source that can be considered - quite rightly it is early days for the LPX II design and a long way to go prolly.

I don't get it. The design is the design is the design. How will it LOOK different? Who/What are the sources? I don't get it.


The design has already changed from 30,000 to 40,000 tons and from one Island to two. This within the last 3-4 months. Plus, the contract to build the ships hasn't been signed. Supposedly sometime between 2021 - 2022.....


Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if the design doesn't become larger. As we hear more news about the French PANG and Chinese Type 004!


Regardless, just expressing my personal opinion........
