    The first Type 956 destroyer HangZhou was bought from Russia at 1990 and it has been servicing in PLAN for 15 years . It is once the most advanced battle ship in PLAN with significant contribution, but so far its major weapons and equipment have already been out of date. During the middle age maintenance of this great battle ship, China conducts some upgrades against weapons, radar and electronic equipment.

    The upgraded at least contain following:
    • 32 units HHQ-16 anti-air missile
    • 24 units HHQ-10 anti-air missile
    • 8 units YJ-12 anti ship missile.
    • 8 units standard VLS, which is believed to be used for ship to surface cruise missiles.
    • Type 382 radar.
    • Type 1130 CIWS

    This mid-term upgrading will add more advanced fire power to this old destroyer built by Russia.

    It shows the skill and capability of Chinese ship building.

    Another old vessel is being upgraded: Type 051B. It started to serve in navy at 1999 which was once the most advanced destroyer built by China, but along with the growing up of PLAN, it is vulnerable to compete with the Type 054A frigate which is massively produced. It is definitely our honor to give this former super star a second life.
