    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).

    do you think it is possible to upgrade 8x YJ-83 with 8x YJ-62 ?

    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.
