If you compare this earlier picture of DDG 161 Hohhot,

To her later pictures,

She gained a number of these cylindrical omnidirectional antennas on top.

Posted by LKJ86 at the PDF. I was starting to get worried. This guy stopped posting for nearly two months since early June.

052C 150 and 052D 131. 150 is one of those 052C that had a minor refit that added new communication arrays and a new ESM unit. 131 is one of those new batch 052D with the Type 1130 CIWS and Type 346A that uses a new calibration system instead of the probe.

Much like the Hefei in the 2017 parade, the Xi'an is a scene stealer in the parade. Here RT's YT video of the event gives the Xi'an a disproportionate amount of screen time.
