    what ship is that next to Sov?

    637 a small tanker? what class anyone ?

    the Chinese panicked into buying the Sovs back in the 1990s when Taiwan issue happened

    I am not sure how capable and integrated they are in the PLAN

    really are second rated DDG, 115 and 116 at least can be fully integrated

    The big question for me was whether the 136/137 would retain the AK-630s or would switch to the Type 1130s, and if so, how many and where. This question seems to have been definitively answered.

    Also one less FCR for the HHQ-16 than for the Shtils.

    Actually, two FCR less. Down from six to four.

    Yes, I meant one less per side.

    Most likely racks for YJ-12 missiles. Should note that the ship is still in trials as when the picture was taken, so when she's done with that, she will likely get a new coat of paint, and the ASMs installed.
