    Too bad there is no interior footages of the missile magazine, too restricted I supposed.

    This video from 22:03 to 24:03, briefly describes about the PLAN Sovs from East Sea Fleet's role.

    [video=youtube;fKXOs8U7JrU]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKXOs8U7JrU[/video]​

    It briefly mentions that while the PLAN Sovs are very capable anti-ship platform, it has slightly lesser capable anti-air and anti-sub roles. The main AA and ASu role goes into the 2 newer Type 052c DDGs - no.150 (Changchun) & no.151 (Zhengzhou), with another 2 more Type 052C - no.152 & 153, Jinan & Xi'an , to be confirmed by PLAN for the ESF. PLAN Sovs are still the major surface combatant in Anti-ship role with its deadly SS-N-22 Sunburns.

    Together with the newer Type 052C and the PLAN Sovs, the ESF is a force not to be taken lightly of.

    The picture is from the home base of the SOVREMENNYY's at Dinghai-Yangcan (30 00 20 N 122 01 03 E), which was built specifically for 3 Destroyer Flotilla in 2009.

    I am afraid it is PS'ed. The pier with two accesses measures 600 m - no way they could have four SOVREMENNYY's each 156.5 m there (note how there is one 956ME, one 956E, one 956ME, one 956E).

    The pictures of 139 in post # 17 is from the Xiangshan Degaussing Station (29 31 14 N 121 40 30 E), attached to Xiangshan Navy Yard 4819.

    The range of Moskit-M (which is the version PLAN uses) is well above 120 km, something like at least 170 km.

    The first two uses 3M-80E and their range is 120 km.
    Only the latter two uses improved version and have range of 240 km. And they only got increased to that much because their flying the lo-hi-lo flight path instead of the lo flight path of the original.

    I have seen similar information, but it makes little sense to me. The Russian (Soviet) SOVREMENNYY’s switched to lengthened Moskit-M launch tubes from Hull 15 (BESPOKOYNYY). As HANGZHOU and FUZHOU were laid down as Hulls 18 and 19 for the Russian Navy, they would naturally have the same tubes, just as the Progress factory would have switched entirely to Moskit-M by the time the two ships were delivered to China in 1999-2001.
