Type 052B Luyang I-class Destroyer

From Canadian Power Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The Type 052B or Guangzhou-class destroyer (NATO reporting name: Luyang I-class) is a class of multirole missile destroyers built by the People's Republic of China. Two ships have been built, with Guangzhou (168) and Wuhan (169) both being commissioned into the People's Liberation Army Navy in July 2004. This class features a stealthy hull and significantly improved air defence systems, an area that had been a major weakness on previous ships designed by China. These ships represent a major improvement over older generation vessels and reflects the PLAN's need for more modern destroyer designs.
