What would be a typical PLAN surface fleet be composed of?

We have seen these type of composition in the past

Fleet A
2 Sovremenny
1 Resupply ship

Fleet B (seen recently)
1 Sovremmny
2 Juanghu I Frigate
1 Resupply ship
1 Survey Ship (I think)

Also please take into account ships that are not in service yet are are still undergoing sea trials. Likewise, also take into account the fleet where the ship is in.

Does anyone know what fleet the 052B is in?

I don't think that fleet is the appropriate term for this... perhaps force or group, depending on the circumstance.

Generally, one might consist of one to two DDGs, and two to three FF(G)s. Additionally, one might see an auxilliary or two bringing up the rear.

Once again, it is dependant on mission tasking. It would be comprised of a larger group of combatants, were it a strike group, or an occupying force (as oine might see used for intimidation of Japanese/Vietnamese/Other Asian outposts).

If it were a mission of research, there'd be more auxilliaries, and less combatants, which would only be there as escort vessels.

I'm sure you get the idea.


A Fleet, however, would denote a much larger organization, one of greater numbers. The North, East, and South Sea Fleets denote *all* vessels and controls in their respective areas, while the PLAN Destroyer Fleet would include all PRC DDs. In the case of a large attacking group, one would likely use the term 'armada' instead of 'fleet,' although 'fleet' is used from time to time in this capacity.

a speculated carrier group would include varyag, a 52c, a 52b, a sov, and two type 54s.

a 52 b is a general purpose ship that can be deployed in almost any situation.

anyone know which fleet the two neww sovs are going?

These look more like what we would call a SAG (Surface Action Group) in America or a task force more than a fleet.

they have two now, but by the time they get a carrier, they will have four.
thats why you should add any ships china's getting in the near future into your fleets.

The Kidd class used to be comparable...but the closest now are the Burkes.
