Why? The city of Anshan was a major hub of steel production to the People's Republic and it remains today. So it has a significant place in the nation's rise to power. It would have a much more historical significance, than say, naming a destroyer the Shenzhen.

You can bet a ton of Azur Lane memes flooding Weibo when a 055 is officially named Anshan. See the '101' in her hairpin.

why do you bring in Shenzhen when it was Nangchang that took pennant number 101?:confused: And seriously what is Anime o_Odoing here in the military affairs?

I am saying that naming convention has nothing to do with cities or regions having history. Shenzhen has zilch history, and in 1998, when the Type 0051B debuted as the most modern vessel of the PLAN, the name Shenzhen was even less so.

The names were being taken from old destroyer names that in turn were originally taken from cities. Nanchang was one of them, it was a Type 051 with the pennant 163, stationed in the South China Seas.

If that was what you meant, then there is nothing "too bad" that 101 was named after any city, is it? You now seem to disagree with yourself then, do you?
I can agree with the notion that "naming may not be reflection of political significance", but that was not the point you have made in
Too bad the second 101 doesn't have the same name as the first 101. But it seems the name 'Anshan' might be headed for another Type 055.

Professor Canrong Jin talking about future of PLA at Hong Kong. He previously revealed the existence of a hypersonic missile with terminal manoeuvrable warhead prior to the 2019 National Day parade which turned out to be DF-17, so I would seriously consider any hints he drop. He said:

1. J-20 is comparable to F-22 and superior to F-35.
2. Type 055 is the most advanced surface warship in the world. Arleigh-Burke class is not comparable to it. Zumwalt is more advanced than 055 in many areas, but in the real world it's in fact useless.
3. Given a few more years, China will have 10+ "cruisers" in service. In this case cruiser is most likely referring to 055 unlike the destroyer designation of PLAN.
4. Given a few more years, China will have 3-4 EMALS CATOBAR carriers in service
5. He seems to believe J-20 will be navalised

In the same panel but not in this video he also said there exists a new advanced road based ICBM that is superior to DF-41.

Speaking of videos about 055, I find this one to be the best and most educational:

Who is the guy with the toy car collection?

An interesting detail I saw in that video is that the Type 346B on Type 055 is depicted as a multi S/C-band radar. Therefore, this class retains the legacy fire control mechanism for HHQ-9.

Jin Canrong is not reliable on military matters.
