PLA Navy received the 49th and 50th Type-056 / 056A corvettes

Corvette project type-056 / 056A, previously adopted by the Navy PLA


Two newest corvettes of the Type-056 / 056A project (Jiangdao class) became part of the PLA Naval Forces, thereby bringing the number of corvettes of this type in Chinese navy up to 50 units. This was reported by TSAMTO with reference to Jane's Defense Weekl.

According to the publication, the PLA Navy was replenished with the 49th and 50th corvettes of the Type-056 / 056A project Luan and Liaocheng. Both corvettes are made in the anti-submarine version.

Luan, built at the Shanghai Hudong Zhonghua shipyard, will be part of the 14th Eastern Fleet squadron. The ceremony of enlistment took place at the Shanghai-Wusong Naval Base of the Eastern Fleet. Liaocheng, built at the Wuchang Shipyard in Wuhan, will be part of the Northern Fleet of the PLA Navy.

Jiangdao class corvettes have a total displacement of 1500 tons. The case is 89 meters long and 11 meters wide. The ship is equipped with various weapons systems, modern radar equipment and air defense systems. The armament includes: 76-mm gun mount, four launchers of anti-ship missiles YJ-83 with a firing range of up to 160 km, eight-container short-range air defense systems HQ-10, two 324-mm three-tube torpedo tubes. When designing corvettes, technologies for reducing visibility are used.

The ship of class "Type-056" independently developed in China and built with 2012 year. From the end of 2014, the PLA Navy began to receive corvettes of the modified 056A project, which differs from the basic 056 project mainly in the presence of towed GUS. In this case, the construction of both modifications continues in parallel.

Ships are intended exclusively for patrolling territorial waters, escorts, fighting surface and submarine forces of the enemy, and protecting fisheries. This is evidenced by both autonomy limited to 15 days and a cruising range of no more than 2000 miles. In carrying out these tasks, they are intended to replace several types of patrol ships and part of the obsolete frigates of project 053H (class "Jianghu I").

The construction of ships of this type is simultaneously carried out at four shipyards: Hudong-Zhonghua in Shanghai, Huangpu Shipyard in Guangzhou, Liaonan Shipyard in Dalian, Wuchang Shipyard in Wuhan. The average rate of delivery of corvettes is one ship every six weeks.

        And what's the use? Something the Chinese are cowardly .. With such a fleet they could already control and observe at the main points of the conflict and tension .. But they can not be heard or seen something ..

            In fact, China has not only corvettes .. I’m not special of course, but I remember off the coast of Syria, Russia has collected everything that is possible. To protect them from the powerful group of the USAG ..
            And are China right to modest the coastline with such a powerful fleet about to defend themselves?

          Well, show me how it is necessary))) Have you put on a hat? The saber was taken and galloped! From the sofa it’s easy to talk about cowardice, especially if the coward is thousands of kilometers away and does not require an answer for words.
          And if it is absolutely bad with eyesight especially for you:
          Ships are intended exclusively for patrolling territorial waters, escorts, fighting surface and submarine forces of the enemy, and protecting fisheries.
          They have already built an aircraft carrier for scaring. From scratch. Themselves. And in 2 years they launched 6 boards of 55 series destroyers of 12000 tons each. Let’s say from our couch that we have built a similar one?
          Forget the days when China was a banana republic, now it is what the USSR could be. Laughing from China, you simply show your extremely narrow horizons.

      Do we have so many corvettes in all the Navy now?

      As of August 2019, the Russian Navy has 6 corpses “Steregushchiy”, “Soobrazitelny”, “Boyky” and “Resistant” as part of the Baltic Fleet and “Perfect”, “Loud” as part of the Pacific Fleet, 1 in trials and 6 more corvettes are being built.

      Air defense 8 containers only short-range, 4 anti-ship missiles, again up to 160 km, 76-mm gun, two torpedo tubes and ASG.

      This ship is defenseless.

      We do not need this, we need the corvette, etc. 20380/20385.

        At the end of last year, such joint exercises were conducted / Gulf of Oman /.
        China is developing comprehensively, and if in “soft power” it is successfully massaging Americans in many places now, then in the military it honestly acknowledges its backlog. 2050, he outlined a tentative date when he could call himself a military superpower equal to the United States.
        And now is only the 2020th year, also significant, by the way. After all, this year is headed by the Chinese Communist Party the year when the PLA reaches a degree of readiness for use in local conflicts at its borders to expand its strategic space. It must be said that China has done a lot to achieve such readiness --- it has created a strong economic base, modernized the PLA according to the most modern standards, has the largest peacekeeping contingent in the world, and has done 1000 more affairs. So already in this decade we will be able to see how China is dealing with small neighbors.

        Cowards would never have created such a vast empire, much less could not have maintained it. It’s just hard for Europeans to understand their logic, but they have it. When in the Korean War they threw their divisions armed with practically the same rifleman and light artillery at well-equipped American / supported by powerful Air Force /, they fought very creatively, did not spare themselves and performed the task of preventing the Yankees close to their land border.
        Now China has a different task. A more ambitious strategic --- become No. 1. Remember about the year 2050 !!! Getting into a direct fight with the United States or Japan would be a disaster right now. The time for the use of military force against these countries has not yet come. But, for example, Beijing never refuses from a military demonstration and defending its borders.

          I think the Chinese were mistaken in the forecast.
          Catch up and overtake ... earlier.

          The only problem is what their real goals will be.
          If you get involved in squabbles with neighbors. then the Anglo-Saxons can get out - India, Myanmar, Vietnam ... Indonesia, the Philippines ... a huge human force. And after a decade - trained and ambitious.
          But if the Chinese make peace with their neighbors, I won’t know the US people ...
          And this scenario is very similar to an action plan.

        hi
        Air defense 8 containers only short range

        I agree with you, the air defense equal to the numbed Shell.
        TTX SAM HHQ-10 (FL3000N):


        Weakly.

        Comparing with our RTOs (if you take it from the 3rd), they benefit from the presence of a GAS and a helicopter. A helicopter, with such a displacement, is an extremely dubious undertaking, and the fuel reserves for it, I think, are a maximum of a couple of sorties.

        The speed of construction is impressive.

        Myself, of course, wants 20380 last bookmarks, with an integrated mast, that’s them ... but they are expensive ..

          I just don’t see the point in 50 weak corvettes that cannot compete on equal terms with anyone, neither from the air nor from the water, not from under the water, except for any smugglers.

          And these 50 underdevelopers consume a huge amount of resources.

          Why did they do so much ?! What is the use of them ?!

          For anti-submarine defense did their bases?

          A very dubious undertaking and certainly not rational.

          For such a task, it is better, in my opinion, to have a GAS network such as our “Harmony” which covers all the approaches to our naval bases and corvettes that can go out according to its signals and expel or attack a surface ship or submarine, for this there is everything, including anti-submarine helicopter and powerful defense and attack systems.

          And what can a small Chinese corvette do?

          - from the air he is attacked from an airplane from a distance at which he will not answer;

          - from or from under water, even NATO Harpoons have a long range and powerful air defense to be the first to attack or shoot down Chinese missiles.

          What is the effectiveness of Chinese corvettes? The fact that there are many, but what's the use of it? The enemy earlier detects and earlier can attack such corvettes with impunity. Even if there will be 200 of them, I do not see any benefit in them.

          Better than 20 corvettes pr.20380 than 50 Type-056 / 56A corvettes.

          Well done quickly built of course, only then what? Another 50-100 corvettes and so on ad infinitum or to reduce production?
