    The Chinese TACAN system looks like this US one.

    On top of the Liaoning and the second carrier's Type 382 "Top Plate" radars. Here it is on the spire to the left in this Type 071.

    But...she is not.

    Shi is probably one of the best...if not the best ASW FFG on earth. With her new upgrades in Sonar, radar, and the new Sea Cepter missiles, she is also VERY effective at short to mid range surface to air.

    The upgraded Duke Class will tie the RN over nicely until the new Type 26s start coming out.

    I am guessing it will all end in a nice 30 number.
