Accroding to this, both of these ships are in service. They are currently being evaluated in terms of cpabilities, but its not very clear. Can anyone confirm that both ships are in service? Or are they just acting as test platforms? And does anyone also have any info as to if more hull s are going to be built?

the first ship, at least, ran into propulsion problems.
they are probably both commissioned. But in general, you are going to have problems with the first of the series. 052Cs are still facing problems right now, that's why we haven't seen more of them. 054As are supposedly getting built somewhere, let's see it when it comes out.

Re: Type 054 FFG status

do you know just why kind of problems the 52C is facing? No one on CDF can be sure, some people are tossing around the idea of an inefficient cooling system.

I'm going to bet it's with the operation of the new combat system. Maybe theres bugs in it, system over heats, not performing to expectations...

The 54 is simply old weapons on a newer hull design, so aside from the engine, there was not much to test. Im guessing thats the reason for the fast apearance fo the 54As.

This ship lacks a SAM like almost every other Chinese frigate. They really need a new SAM system on their ships.

I would call the Hq-7 a ok point defence sam but yes they reely should be working on a replacement

acording to kawa the HG-16 is already designed and will be fitted on the 054A

Good! Because the Crotale isn't sufficient if you have a a battle group. The SM-2 is fitted on the Oliver Perry's and they have a 120km range! The PLAN needs a long-range SAM on their destroyers or the abililty to fit them on a frigate.

Re: Type 054 FFG status

As an FFG, the Type 54 doesnt really need any long range air defence missles. Even the VLS Hq-16 is still estimated to only have a range of 30-40km. Remeber, FFGs are for inner layer protection. since there is not carrier for the 54 to protect, a shorter range SAM will do for self defence.
