The site CJDBY has quite a few extra pictures of the updated 136 in exercise firing its weapons. I couldn't download them, but thought i'd mention it for members here who are interested. One other point when are 138 & 139 likely to be given there MLU?
Pretty a 054A, but armed with two dual-130mm naval artillery for shore bombardment/fire support, plus YJ-12 for taking out carriers and HQ-10 for point defense. Old Soviet ship on steroid.Thanks, got it. My thoughts in mind, this exercise is part of a trio of exercises conducted with in the South, East and North fleets about the same time. Good to see 136 doing her job. The South Fleet involved 161 Hohhot and 169 Wuhan, so that old ship is still being used.
138 and 139 are still active. Based on current trends, they may likely get an MLU but they won't be docking it for anytime soon. I think one of the pictures, second to the top, might have 138 or 139 in that picture, along with 136.
Third picture is a delight. I have been trying to find where the Type 726-4 decoy launchers are, as they are covered with green tarp on previous pictures, or obscured by the crane in the pier. Now you see it in full action.
