    I think it's time we keep a track of all PLAN movements as China becomes more active here is a list of all the anti-piracy missions any corrections wellcome

    Type 920 hospital ships has also joined some of these missions like the 6th escort mission I will update as we go along

    We can see that PLAN used a single replenishment tanker for two flotillas until the 11th escort mission, that was when replenishment tankers were highly stretched before two Type 903A started to come on line, now they have started to rotate with the warships on a single tour rather than staying out for two tours

    Also 4th escort mission had 4 vessels and 1st escort mission had 2 x DDG and LPD has been deployed twice once in 6th escort flotilla and once in the 15th

    More analysis to come


    1st Escort Flotilla

    DDG 170, DDG 169 and Tanker 887

    2nd Escort Flotilla

    DDG 167, FFG 570 and Tanker 887

    3rd Escort Flotilla

    FFG 529, FFG 530 and Tanker 886

    4th Escort Flotilla

    FFG 525, FFG 526, FFG 568 and Tanker 886

    5th Escort Flotilla

    DDG 168, FFG 568 and Tanker 887

    6th Escort Flotilla

    LPD 998, DDG 171 and Tanker 887

    7th Escort Flotilla

    FFG 529, FFG 530 and Tanker 886

    8th Escort Flotilla

    FFG 525, FFG 526 and Tanker 886

    9th Escort Flotilla

    DDG 169, FFG 569 and Tanker 885

    Can someone translate this picture? What does it say on the right hand side about PLAN deployments? Ships dates and location of travel, what are the numbers 2-9

    ^^^ 2-9 on the centre line is months of year 2013.

    Going left signifies eastward movement with the line representing Malacca strait crossing.

    Going right signifies westward movement with the line representing going out of first island chain.

    Good work no_name!

    Here's my analysis of the Gulf of Aden missions over the last 5 years

    26 warships sent covering DDG, FFG, LPD and replenishment tankers

    Also the frequency of their deployments, 568 has been deployed 3 times

    First is pennat number second is number of times deployed third is the fleet and forth is the class of ship

    Example 568 has been deployed three times from SSF it's Type 054A

    Thanks for the table Asif, good work.

    I notice that it is the 054A class of frigates that seem to be doing the bulk of these deployments.

    Not bad for what is still a brand new class of vessels!

    Actually I have updated the table to show which vessel was deployed and from which fleet

    We can see the DDG mainly have been pulled from SSF and the FFG mainly from ESF

    For this reason I think that the first Type 052D will go to SSF as probably 172 and 173 to add to the two Type 052C the 170 and 171

    We can also now see that more recently NSF has been given the chance to deploy too so they are seeing some part of the action and thats with older vessels
