Its likely to be 156 with the Sixth Destroyer Division, ESF
If it ain't 156 Zibo, there are two 052DL currently in trials for the ESF, 132 Suzhou and 157 Nanning. Would be news if any of the two have been commissioned already.

122 Tangshan is another 052DL that is ready to get into service, maybe after or do a dual commissioning with 121 Qiqihar with the 10th.

Speaking of 122 Tangshan, here's the latest image, taken today.

Cool. What are the chances she will have a dual commissioning with 121 Qiqihar as part of the same squadron?

Their squad mate 120 Chengdu recently had live fire drill with 101 Nanchang, the second time this ship has exercised with the Nanchang.

122 Tanshan on the left. The other one, unmarked, might either be 132 Suzhou or 157 Nanning. There is possibility that 162 Huainan may have begun trials.

It has conducted its maiden trial.
What irks me is 121. Just like other units launched from dalian, its taken way longer to be operationalized than ships launched from jiangnan. I'm not even sure if it has entered service yet.
