I don't think they can fit the VLS while keeping the 100mm gun, so I see the following options:Will they upgrade the 2 type 054 frigate?
or better give them to the Coast Guard. those 054 painted white would be perfect. the navy can order two more 054 ''B'' as replacements.I don't think they can fit the VLS while keeping the 100mm gun, so I see the following options:
- turn them into "almost" 054As: replace the 100mm with the 76mm gun, add the VLS, change the radars
seems very expensive, might not be possible without very big internal changes
- do an "053H3" upgrade: replace the HQ-7 with a HQ-10, perhaps replace the 4 AK630 with 2 new CIWS
should be a fast and cheap upgrade, but doesn't improve them that much
- sell them off (and upgrade/downgrade them according to the wishes of the buyer)
