However, that's a fan art work. Hardly official.

For long range antiship missiles it does not matter where its pointed at, since the missile will simply turn to the direction of the target.
Doesn't it have to have pointed in the general direction?

Here is a Weibo or Douyin style video of a Type 054A. As more of such videos pop up, we can expect some people to cross post them over to Twitter rather than still images.


Is this new? It looks suspiciously like the joint drill with the Brazilian navy in 2013, if my visual memory serves me correctly.

EDIT: I found the original footage. It's indeed from a maneuver with the Brazilian navy 7 years ago.

Its definitely old. The ship shown lacks some of the retrofitted fittings that were later installed, and which I use as clues as to how recent the picture is.

Is the picture of 529 getting overhaul something that was done in the past or is currently undergoing?

Ongoing I believe. The image was a from a series of photos taken around Hudong that included up-to-date ones for the 075 LHDs.
