China Launched the 30th (and last ?) Type 054A Frigate for the PLAN

Posted On Monday, 09 July 2018 11:15

Our colleagues from East Pendulum are reporting that the Huangpu Wenchong Shipyard of the Chinese naval group CSSC launched a Type 054A frigate for People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN or Chinese Navy) on June 30, 2018. This is the 15th frigate of this class (designated Jiangkai II-class by NATO) built in this shipyard, located in Guangzhou in Southern China, and the 30th overall in the series. This is the 13th vessel launched for the PLAN in 2018 (close to 100,000 tons for the first haf of the year) showing once again the fast pace of China's naval shipbuilding industry.

(...SNIPPED)
