China unveiled its first type of made-for-export ship-borne vertical launch system at the ongoing Airshow China 2021. The VLS’ quad-pack launch cells can load up to four missiles instead of just one, which is one of its most important features.

The HT-1E universal vertical launch system, which is suitable for all types of seagoing warships, is the first of its kind to be licensed for export in China, according to China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC).

HT-1E VLS​

Unlike prior launch systems that were specialized to specific types of missiles and were complicated and took up extra space, the HT-1E is universal, allowing it to carry a greater number of missiles of various varieties, according to CASIC.It can significantly boost a warship’s multirole capabilities in carrying out multidirectional, large area and saturation attack and defense missions, CASIC said.

The HT-1E was loaded with missiles including the CM-103 long-range supersonic cruise missile, HHQ-9E long-range air defense missile, CM-802B subsonic missile, and FM-3000N air defense missile at the CASIC exhibition hall at the air show. While bigger missiles such as the CM-103 and HHQ-9E require their own vertical launch cell, the same cell may hold up to four smaller missiles such as the FM-3000N.

According to CASIC, the HT-1E is compatible to both cold- and hot-launched missiles.

Finally some progress!! CDDL signed a contract with IWM and Royal Haskoning for consultancy service to prepare draft DPP and feasibility study to upgrade CDDL by constructing second dry dock with associated shipbuilding infrastructure on 14th October, 2021. Senior defense secretary Abu Hena Mostafa Kamal also visited CDDL on 16th October, 2021. The dockyard has approximately 10 acres of empty lands for the construction of the second dry dock.

I don't think so. After BN messed up the plan we all thought first two frigates will be built by foreign shipyard but so far it looks like CDDL is sticking to it's original plan to build all six frigates locally. After building the second dock and developing the design house i expect they will proceed to construction of those ships.

Just a note, since the shipyard has forgot to mention;
The range can be increased via reconfigurable spaces. The initial design is made for a customer who is not interested in long-range autonomy. The range can be increased up to 9/10,000 NM.
