Type 052D Luyang III-class Guided Missile Destroyer

From Canadian Power Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The Type 052D destroyer (NATO code name Luyang III-class, or Kunming-class after the lead ship) is a class of guided missile destroyers being deployed by the Chinese People's Liberation Army Navy. Currently it is being built at two different Chinese ship yards.

After the Type 052C destroyer, two new hulls were spotted under construction at Changxingdao-Jiangnan Shipyard (JNCX) in August 2012. According to the picture, they were armed with a new 130mm main gun and new AESA radar system. Altogether five vessels of this class are now fitting out or under construction, with at least a further two on order or planned, two vessels on sea trial and three vessels active.

Following the completion of twelve Type 052D ships, the PLAN will shift production to the newer Type 055 destroyers.
