A minor update: three 052Ds seen at Dalian shipyard.
As I posted over on CDF; these pictures are old and are originally posted by Chinese state media and in colour as well...Type 311 active/passive towed sonar?
Translated from Chinese by Google
? ? ? ? ? When did the 311 active / passive towed sonar's storage / drop capsule allow foreign media to shoot? ? ?

Wouldn't it be more appropriate to name an 055 destroyer after Chongquing, rather than 052D?There was a Type 051 destroyer that had the name Chongqing. Since then no PLAN ship has been named for the city, despite modern Chongqing is a megacity with over 30 million people. That oversight needs to be addressed.

An elementary school student in Chongqing wrote a letter to PLAN and sent it to PLAN. He then received a letter from PLAN Commander General Shen Jinlong wishing to have a destroyer named "Chongqing". Shen Jinlong said in a letter that PLAN has interacted with and cooperated with the Chongqing City Government.
