    Looks like a shorter version of the US littoral combat ships based in Singapore.

    I'd say it is pretty much the same design with a very few alterations in terms of the structure. Clearly it has a much different sensor and weapons fit.

    But it is clearly either a Chinese Coast Guard or Maritime Surveillance design and not outfitted or painted as a PLAN warship.

    The People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) has decommissioned two 58 m patrol craft, according to state-owned television news channel CCTV.
    CCTV news footage, which was also published by a local defence blog on 12 April, showed a banner stating that vessels with pennant number 728 and 729 were being retired.
    According to IHS Jane's Fighting Ships , the pennant numbers belong to the PLAN's Type 037 Hainan-class fast attack patrol craft. Vessels 728 and 729 operated in the PLAN's South Sea Fleet.
    The Type 037 is equipped with the MG-11 Tamir-N (Stag Ear) high-frequency sonar for submarine prosecution, and can also be armed with up to 18 depth charges.
