This is a discussion on Type 056 OPV/Corvette within the Navy forums, part of the China Defense & Military category; Is second pic the ship for export to Bangladesh?...
Is second pic the ship for export to Bangladesh?
A little off topic with the Bangladesh LPC, but supposedly three with be built. It's 64 m long with a displacement of 648 tons and top speed of 28 knots.
btw Namibia also got delivered a Chinese corvette few months ago it was reported on Janes Defence
shipbuilding in China has become so advanced it seems like if any country has a requirment China can make the design and within a few months have the ship under construction with a weapons layout which meets the needs of the customer, plus at a price that the country can afford at breakneck speed, good times for all

Actually I believe C-803 exist, it is another name for YJ-83.
I am in my Shutter Happy Mode, shoot more, shoot more, shoot more!
I don't agree with that. YJ-82 is the submarine launched version of YJ-8/A. YJ-81 is the air launched version of YJ-8/A. We've clearly seen air launched and sea launched versions of C-802. C-802AKD's best domestic corollary for example is KD-88. C-802A seems the most comparable to YJ-83. There is also CM-802AKG, which seems to be comparable to other variants of KD-88.
Sea Shadow was built in 1984 to develop stealth ships of future US Navy. And latest AB destroyers have very good stealth features.
Sea Shadow was built in 1984 and used in secret but normal service until her public debut in 1993, to examine the application of stealth technology on naval vessels. In addition, the ship was designed to test the use of automation to enable the reduction of crew size. The ship was created by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the U.S. Navy and Lockheed. ""
I guess LCS is the example that I am looking for, however looking at the ships, you can still see the conventional mass and sensor equipment attached, but I wonder how can they do the same Zumwalt with almost complete smooth surfaces.
