    The production of 054A has not been completed yet. That is most of the story.

    This is a view of a Type 054A frigate from the back of a US destroyer.

    No, this is not the Type 054A frigate stalking the US destroyer on an SCS FONOP or Taiwan transit, but the USS Sterett on a visit to Zhanjiang and then exercising with the Huangshan. This was back in June of 2017.

    Looks like they removed all the radars from the main mast. I cannot even see the air to air missiles. Possible upgrade to Type 054A like configuration?

    That's what I think. I like to see how they would fit a 32 tube VLS where the HQ-7 launcher and magazines are. Another possibility is that they may reduce that part to 16 tube VLS. Then maybe, put an HQ-10 launcher where the HQ-7 launcher is? Like what they did with the Sovs. I truly like to see how this ship would turn out.

    Yes, that is also a possibility. Similar to the mid-life refit done on the Type 053H3 too.

    The other possibility is of course, the 051B refit as a precedent, where you completely shave off the deck with the HQ-7, so everything is flat, and install the 32 cell VLS. The result can be a near complete 054A replica. There is a question if you might be able to shave off dollars by keeping the H/PJ87 100mm gun and not installing the Type 366 radar, which is the dome on top of the bridge.

    I've noticed that on the latest 054a builds, there's a new and rather sizable radome installed atop the helicopter hangar. Does anyone know what it's for? A new communications antenna perhaps?
