Official retirement of last 2 active type 051 DDG pennant # 165 and 166 was held today.

Next will be type 052, DDG 112 and 113, in about 5 years time. And the lone type 051B DDG 167 Shenzhen will follow in about 10 years time.

2 more pennant #s freed for a possible future 052E or 055A

That frees the pennants 165 and 166 for future destroyers, and the names Zhanjiang and Zhuhai, like in where Zhuhai air show is. Ironically, Zhanjiang is also the name of the base which these destroyers are deployed, and which the current ships of the 2nd Destroyer Division are stationed: 161 Hohhot, 167 Shenzhen, 168 Guangzhou and 169 Wuhan. Any ship that gets the pennant 162 to 166 are going to be stationed here.

Next ships after 161 Hohhot would be 162 Nanning from Jiangnan and 163 Guilin from Dalian. Do you notice that most of the ships in this group have names from southern cities? While on the Third Division on the East China Sea, most ships including incoming ones, are named from cities on the East China coast.

Most if not all Type 071 are in this base, along with obligatory 054A and 056 ships. I think first Type 075 might be assigned here.
