    While a lot of the upgraded stuff on the ship is from the 054A, the ECM/ESM suite is from the 052C/D.

    Is it confirmed these are YJ-12? Canister looks more like the DF-10A o_Oo_Oo_O

    Indeed. Looks like the Ground launched YJ-18 canister.
    I too have never seen a YJ-12 canister. Only the air-launched version has been shown.
    Maybe the 051B carries upto 8x YJ-18 instead of YJ-12.

    When the YJ-12s were shown in parade, they look like this. No canisters or anything. These look like mock ups though and may still not reflect how a land based YJ-12 battery would actually look like, so I would caution their veracity. There are reports that alleged that ground based YJ-12s were deployed in the artificial islands in the South China Seas, so it is possible there are surface units of the missile.

    Going back to the 051B. If there are antiship missile versions of the DF-10A aka CJ-10, would that be the YJ-100?

    a plaque on the ship during the recent open day confirms the canisters are for YJ-12A, but naturally they use a different AShM for the picture on the plaque.

    henri k has also tweeted that a presenter on the ship during the open day says the missile has a range of 400km

    Excellent. That settles things. Yeah, max range of 400km and mach 4 is possible depending on flight profile.

    That's pretty solid for confirmation. Can't beat that.


    Anyway, only picture I have known about the YJ-12 launched from a ship, which does confirm ship launched capability.

    That image is supposed to be of the export version of the YJ-12 - CM-302 with range limited to 290 km.
