What in particular is wrong about its architecture? PLAN is still building Type 052D destroyers which are based on an equally old baseline. JMSDF too is still building ships based on the Arleigh Burke baseline.Flight III is not really decent. It is running at maximum capacity of outdated ship architecture. Consider that first Flight III enters service in 2023 which with 35-year life means service until 2058 for a ship with architecture (and thus potential for upgrades) from 1991. That's 67 years.
Consider that a WW2 destroyer from 1945 was only 46 years old in 1991. This is how outdated Arleigh Burke Flight III class is regardless of new radars or computers. There are serious consequences to that - especially logistics - that are not obvious at first glance.
