    Chinese Wikipedia lists 053H1 frigate 533 Taizhou as retired but has no associated date. In August 2018 hmmwv posted on CDF that Taizhou was scheduled to be retired, but it is not clear if/when this actually occurred, i.e. late 2018 or 2019. Does anyone have further information regarding the status of this ship or her similarly-aged sisters?

    Down to 51 frigates:

    30x054A
    2x054
    8x053H3
    1x053H2
    6x053H1G
    4x053H1

    One would imagine that 051 109 Kaifeng will be the next surface combatant to retire, given that it was commissioned in 1982 whereas 534 Jinhua was commissioned in 1983.

    With the recent retirement of 053H1 #545 Linfen, PLAN is down to three 053H1s in service and it seems likely that the others will be gone within the next year or two.
