    I don't think there is much that can (or needs to) be upgraded on these boats unless China wants to replace the missiles with a different type (not just an updated version of the current missiles).

    To me it is not big at all. Let's say the 022 is 60m (I'm sure it's shorter) long, so 60m divided by 144 equal to 0.4166m. You know my 1/16 RC tanks are between 40cm to 50 cm hull length.

    I think the YJ-62 is bigger and heavier than YJ-83, so I guess that at the very least the missile launchers would need to be adapted. I don't know if there is enough of a margin for that on the 022.

    I also don't know of any other replacement of YJ-83 with YJ-62, so the PLAN seems still quite happy with YJ-83 in general (or perhaps YJ-62 isn't that much better or much more expensive ?).

    It's not too big in the sense that it take sup too much room...just that it does not match the 1/350 scale fleet I have put together for the PLAN.
