Confirmed, China's Navy 22 Type 056 Corvette (Surface Warfare Version) will be handed over to China Coast Guard (CCG) immediately to make room for more than 22 Brand New Type 054A ASW Frigate currently on Order in various Chinese Shipyards



Missile launchers have been dismantled and new CCG paint & LED Billboard have also been applied as well.

Looks like Chinese Navy move to Bigger Warships and more Specialized ones :tup:

They will still retain 50 Unit Type 056A Corvettes (ASW Variant) tho. With currently 30 unit ASW Type 054A Frigate in Active Service, and with 22 new orders.

What a Powerful ASW Capability !

Looks like a big waste of money on poor planning but anyway, China has plenty of money to spare.

I think it's not poor planning.

Many Type 056 Corvettes (Surface Warfare Variant) build before 2015.

Many happen from 2015 to 2021, those planners back in 2012 wouldn't realize today China Technology is so Advanced and Rich. With so Huge budget, so China's Navy can focus on something bigger.

While CCG need many patrol ships, so they think why not send it to CCG and buy New Frigates that's more Capable and have Powerful ASW Equipments

Surface Warfare Variant is really useless now...No situation to fit it.....ASW at least can hurt for Sub.

The surface variant of Type 056 was built at a time when China needed more warships very quickly when South China Sea tensions were high with Vietnam and Philippines. But now that tension with those 2 countries is no longer the main issue as China has established dominance over them. Type 056 did its job at the time.

Now the main issue is US Navy especially submarines. This is why I believe the surface variant of the Type 056 is no longer needed with the arrival of the Type 055 cruiser and many Type 052D destroyers.

China Coast Guard will now get even more powerful while freeing up the Navy to receive more Type 054A frigates, Type 052D destroyers, and Type 055 cruisers.

Yes, back then in 2009 when they designed Type 056 Corvettes. South east asian navy like Vietnam and Regional navy like ROCN (Republic of China) and Japanese navy still a threat to China's Navy.

There is NO Aircraft Carriers
There is NO LHD
There is NO Cruisers
There is only 1 LPD
Only 13 Destroyers
Only 6 Type 054/A ASW Frigate

Even they have 10 Capable Type 053H3 Frigate to supplement that

Also back then, There is NO China's Military Bases across South China Sea.
So China's Navy need Corvettes Fleet to Patrol the Area.

Now after China's Military Bases across South China Sea running. China's Navy can send Military Aircrafts daily to Patrol & Scan the whole Area for 24 hours non-stop

Need to mass produce the Type 055 cruiser. Hopefully it gets the HQ-26 anti-ballistic missile soon to provide sea-based ballistic missile defence.
