    So... no one has translated whatever he posted yet ,huh?

    Some highlights:
    1. DDG 131 is confirmed in service, marking the 10th 052D ship assigned to PLAN. All these 10 ships were built in Shanghai. The 3 Type 052D destroyers in Dalian are all completed but yet to be put into service. This is somehow strange considering the fact that the 'oldest' one in Dalian was launched 3 years ago. DDG 131 belongs to The 6th Destroyer Detachment, Eastern Fleet. This detachment, with the name 'Iron fist', also holds all the 4 Sovremenny-class destroyers in China.

    2.There have been 19 052Ds for now (including those under construction), which can be divided into 4 types: 【With calibration assistant measurement antenna (which is labelled in the picture below)+730 CIWS】(*8),【Without assistant antenna +730 CIWS】(*2),【Without assistant antenna+1130 CIWS】(*3),【lengthened】(*6, of which 2 launched)

    3.The 10th Destroyer Detachment, Northern Fleet is now the only destroyer detachment without any modern destroyers built in the 21st century. All destroyers in the 10th detachment are outdated Type 051 (That's why in China watchers like us, as well as some navy men, call this unit 'the nursing home'...)

    I made a mistake above. DDG 131 belongs to The 3rd Destroyer Detachment, Eastern Fleet.
    Sry...
    The 3rd detachment is the unit with 4 Sovremenny-class. The 6th Destroyer Detachment also belongs to the Eastern Fleet but the destroyers in the 6th are 4 052C.

    What incentive do they have to come here? SDF suffers from a huge signal to noise ratio problem. And also blatant political or anti-Chinese trolling. Patriotic Chinese would be unlikely to want to contribute to this mess.

    The 12th destroyer Type 052D, 161 Hohhot, appeared at the Zhanjiang Naval Base where he will be admitted to active duty.

    Frigate 536 should be around the area ahead of LPD 998. 998 is ready to leave as you can see the arrangements.

    998 + Tanker + Frigate 536 are all set ready to leave as the next escort task force. I am not sure if DDG 161 Hohhot is joining them, I don't think so.

    Posted by cirr at the PDF. Are these modules for the 24th Type 052D?
