    Three new 056A on the background behind Type 075. This pic posted early by by78 at the 075 thread.

    Many countries have ships similar to the type 022.
    The PLA can always sell some of them.

    The type 022 was good enough for its intended purpose, in fact one might say it is almost excellent.
    If the primary goal was to deny enemy surface ships operations in brown to litoral areas in conjunction with air and land assets for support, then the 022 is perfectly suited for it, especially against enemy amphibious operations. Small wonder why a certain island country is betting big on such a class. China's priority has shifted which the 022 was never designed for.
    The 056 would be a little too big, too slow and a tad bit too pricey to be utilized in a speedy swarm attack.

    Type 022 certainly has radar.
