It’s probably more than just particles. something in that cloud has to be large enough to actually reflect the intended radar wave length.

Usually that's the X-band, so that's about 3.75 to 2.5 cm, but you also need to consider seekers using the Ku or Ka band.

The chaff decoys are set like a menu. The ESM picks up the threat missile's seeker's wave length, and then the computer picks from a palette which decoy to use to match that wavelength. That's why the DLS is part of a set:

Type 726 EW set.

Type 726-1 ESM, Type 726-2 ESM, Type 726-3 ECM, Type 726-4 DLS.

One ESM is for signal analysis, the other ESM is for directional finding.

Yesterday marks the 7th anniversary of the commissioning of DDG 172 Kunming, the lead ship of the 052D class. How time flies.

Time flies fast. I remember when this beast was first commissioned, Chinese commentators were still talking about "surpassing the Royal Navy." And back in 2015, some Brits were still joking about being able to defeat the PLAN in a South China Sea naval battle with the Daring class and SSNs.

I think you'll find that a lot of Brits are still doing that. Ignorance is bliss.

How much the PLAN has improved over the past 10 years is nothing short of a miracle

Type 052D 155 "Nanjing" participated in a recent exercise:

DDG-175 Yinchuan's main gun firing its 56th round (projectile just off the muzzle):

In the distance were AOE-967 Chaganhu (closer) and LPD-987 Wuzhishan. The flotilla traveled more than 8,000 nautical miles in one month.
