    Yesterday a quite strange transport of a Z-20 mock-up was spotted on its way to Shanghai and rumours popped up, it might be related to tests on the Type 055 DDG ... this image is from today!

    PS: Seems I was wrong, I think that new module in the background is more important. Sorry guys :(

    It is the same VLS type, not sure about the lengths though (whether all 112 cells are 9 meters long). With regards to quad packing, we have not yet seen absolute evidence about this capability. It is theorized that the HHQ-16 SAMs are/can be quad-packed. Not sure if a PL-12 surface launch variant is also fielded and/or quad packed.

    Nothing that is in PLAN service right now. SD-50 aka DK-10 might fit in it, but SD-50 is currently only an export item right now.

    Russian 9M96 family of missiles (9M96, 9M96E and 9M96E2) can fit on it, given that HQ-9s are close to being physical copies of the Russian 5V55 and 40N6 missiles, and in paper these missiles can fit on any tube that can fit an HQ-9 or S-300 missile. You can even fit these on the 051C and the 052C. Getting these on the 051C is just a matter of signing a contract for the Russians, as the quad pack is a RIF-M option.

    I don't know if China ordered these with their S-400 packages. Would be easy to copy it and add a seeker of "Chinese characteristics".
