    Looks like you're right, not every system was mentioned by name in the english commentary. But back to navy ships.

    Pics posted by LKJ86 at the PDF.

    If you noticed the two pictures on top, and compared to the two pictures at the bottom, you will see the growth in all the antenna that has sprung out at the back over the hanger, as a result of retrofits. Similar to the 052C/D retrofits on the deck above the bridge, these relate to datalinks, SATCOM and CEC.

    What I think they should do in the successor frigate, is that you see the flat front face of the superstructure below the bridge of the 054A. Its too flat and vertical and that can give a good radar return from the front. They should angle that more, and put a facet on each of the cheeks, so that it looks like a much larger version of the front face on the Type 056. That's also similar to the way its done on the Admiral Gorshkov class frigates. It would also make the ship more aesthetically more pleasing and aggressive.
