Is it just me or does the Yu-11 ASROC wing look a bit different? a simple top-mounted swivel straight wing instead of 2 mid-body swept folding wings?

The swept wings might have been prototype only, with the final version having fixed wings.

Looks like the early 056s are really going to be transferred to the Chinese CG. Now they got new digital billboard and the chimney shape has changed.

That is a good move. The original 20 are close to useless in a hot war, they'd perform the same function as a 022 except more expensive.

At least the ASW one is equipped with a decent asw package

There're 22 056 corvettes. I won't be surprised if PLAN transfer some of their 056s to CCG, but 20... really?
It's confirmed. 20 at least are transferred to CCG to make rooms for new frigates. Missile launchers have all been dismantled and new CCG paint have also been applied as well.

Wow! Is there any picture of that? So, are they going to refit the rest two 056s, or just to sell them?
