    If you compare this earlier picture of DDG 161 Hohhot,

    To her later pictures,

    She gained a number of these cylindrical omnidirectional antennas on top.

    Posted by LKJ86 at the PDF. I was starting to get worried. This guy stopped posting for nearly two months since early June.

    052C 150 and 052D 131. 150 is one of those 052C that had a minor refit that added new communication arrays and a new ESM unit. 131 is one of those new batch 052D with the Type 1130 CIWS and Type 346A that uses a new calibration system instead of the probe.

    Posted by icloo at the PDF. Also from the Japan MoD site.

    Chinese task force with DDG 117, two FFGs and a Type 901 AOE tanker is on the way to the Pacific.

    Much like the Hefei in the 2017 parade, the Xi'an is a scene stealer in the parade. Here RT's YT video of the event gives the Xi'an a disproportionate amount of screen time.

    Yeah, a kind gesture by RT.

    The Xi'an looks gigantic compared to those Buyans !

    Hardly any footage of the Indian Talwar class Tarkash just right behind the Xi'an.
