China now ready to export these type 052 ships to some asian country

The export version is said to be 6000 tons while the PLAN Type 052DL is said to be 7500 tons. What is the difference in the design?

Few are going under upgrades
All Type 051 in Chinese navy had been retired.

The last two ships were retired on 2020 August 28th. They are:-
type 051G1 pennant number 165 PLANS Zhanjiang and
type 051G2 pennant number 166 PLANS Zhuhai,

They have standard displacement of 3,675 tons, which means they are smaller than type 054A/P frigate. It would be better to buy a brand new frigate than spend money on an old ship with limited hull life.

However, there is a lone type 051B, pennant number 167 PLANS Shenzhen, 6,100 tons displacement, commissioned in 1999. It is the only ship in this class, and is 23 years old.

And there are two type 051C, pennant numbers 115 and 116, 7,100 tons displacement, commissioned in 2006. Only 2 ships were built in this class.

PLANS Shenzhen had completed MLU in 2016 while 115 and 116 are now due for MLU. So I suspect that the Youtube video on type 051G upgrade might have mistaken type 051C for type 051G.

Current numbers of destroyers in PLAN:-
7 type 055
13 type 052D
12 type 052DL
6 type 052C
2 type 052B
2 type 052 (#112 and #113, to be retired in around 5 years)
2 type 051C
1 type 051B
