@Deino
Why is the discussion about Type 055 sensors off topic in the Type 055 thread?

Since you are constantly not only discussing the 055's sensors but the whole story of SAM systems, and so on ... we have dedicated topics, @siegecrossbow already deleted a few post, me too, we gave two kind reminders and now it is enough.

Well I am not happy with this kind of moderation. I had previously asked the moderators to move the discussion that steered off into missile guidance to the dedicated thread. What did the moderator do? He deleted the entire discussion. And now you delete it again.

EDIT: I see that just now some posts were finally moved to the missile guidance thread. Thank you!

No, I'm not a moderator to clean up the mess! Stick to the topic, listen what the moderators say and if there are a few, then please inform the moderators but stop with this endless discussion until it is enough.

I cannot and in fact I'm not in the mood - to read pages of stuff to sort out what can remain and what should be moved.

Honestly, You are mature enough at least to stop after a warning!

The two points that you make are shockingly surprising to me. Do you mind elaborate on how you get this?
  1. I am old and have many relatives in the military some have served as early as the 1960s. I have never heard such things especially that PLA was officially named "National Defense Force" for whatever length of time.
  2. "Chinese Navy" is a English phrase, not a official title in English. It is like calling Xi Jingping Chinese president, but his official title remains Chairman of PRC in English. Just because somebody choose that English phrase in the English newspaper does not mean anything.
have seen a central document of the Cultral Revolution from 1960s signed by Zhou Enlai which had a title 《关于派国防军维护铁路交通的命令》"the order to send the national defense force to protect the railway".

Tam, you said..

Six turbo-generators on the 055, presumably QD50 (might be excessive??) are powering sensors, EW and communications on the 055.

Where are these generators located? In the mast?

Presumably, in an IEP setup these could also be used for locomotion? How much power could it contribute for propulsion? Thanks.

No not mast, not even close. Should be deep below amidships. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but it should be behind the main funnel ahead of the VLS amidships. Use below pic as reference.

Some new pics. This looks to be a YJ-18 being loaded amidships of the 055. Added pic of the same canister being loaded on 052D for comparison.

Not to be confused with HHQ-9 whose canister looks like this.

For correction, last picture is a YJ-83 canister, probably for a Type 054A not in the frame.

Based on CCTV video snapshots, there are 2 sets of 3 power generators. One set is behind the rear VLS. There is an auxiliary funnel at the back of the rear mast.

Self explanatory.
