Correction Notice
The article presents a correction to the author's article 'Combat Fleets,' published in the July 2003 issue of the periodical 'Proceedings.' The author says that a Chinese destroyer under construction at Shanghai, China, that has two helicopter hangars, had been mentioned in his column. He says that conclusion was made on the basis of a Web site photo that turns out to have been altered so that a stern-on shot of the second of the new ships in a graving dock shows two hangars where only one exists. The fourth of the new destroyer series is now believed to be a duplicate of the third ship, the DDG-170 shown in the illustration. This error points to the ease with which digital photography can be changed, either for official security or policy reasons or just for fun.
