    DDG 175 goes off for the 35th? escort mission to the Gulf of Aden. Posted by LKJ86 from the PDF.

    Would 052D be a bit overkill for such a mission?

    They have been using destroyers from the very start of these missions. Not only that, but they have also used Type 071 LPDs.

    These escort missions often include port visits and naval exercises with various countries, so you're preparing for the whole banana.

    The escort missions are in reality training missions

    Especially for the top officers, as this is a feather in their cap that leads to promotions.

    Don't forget there's an upcoming joint naval drill with Russia and Iran.

    Sekai no Kansen has a special issue on the PLAN coming this February but was too late to add the commissioning of 017 Shandong.

    2月号は中国海軍の特集号ですが、中国国産空母の1番艦が就役した12月17日には印刷がすべて終わっており、まったくフォローできませんでした。

    The February issue was a special issue of the Chinese Navy, but on December 17, when the first Chinese aircraft carrier was put into service, all printing was finished and could not be followed at all.
