I think the biggest concern would be whether there was any modification to the magazine and feeding mechanism that might require a more drastic overhaul that involves taking out the old gun and it's magazine.I'm not sure where to put this question, so here it is
Since pictures of 054B have come out, we know that it uses 100mm cannon descended from French 100mm that's later localized and modified. Previously PLAN has used the localized 100mm, but those have fallen out of favor, reportedly because of reliability issues. knowing 100mm is back, there're probably upgrades to iron out the reliability issues of the old version.
That begs the question, do older DDGs that have the older version of the localized 100mm get any upgrade to their 100mm guns?
A quick question about ship bow design.

So, is this legit? and if yes, is there any interest and research from Chinese institutions on this particular bow design?
My thought is that USV/UUVs will quickly be very effective anti submarine forces on their own right very soon.A nuclear attack submarine can travel at full speed while submerged. Much faster than most surface ships. The best counter against submarines is actually aircraft with anti-submarine capabilities.
