054A is not the most advance and potent frigate in Asia


This one I believe is the best frigate or Russian Admiral Goshkov class. Their fire power is far more potent.

Mk 41 cell (SM-2) or 24 cell VLS with S-300. Giving them true fleet air defense protection and long range strike capabilities.

But 054A has the most balance in terms of air defense , surface and anti-sub capabilities for frigate of its class.

Only the hull is built by South Korea but everything else is imported from the west, so I wouldn't count it as Asian. Plus, it's considerably smaller and less capable than Type 054A.

The weapon system are imported but the radar and sensor has Korea involved. Still if you ask me pick HQ-16 cell vs MK-41. Its no brainer that RTN pick MK-41 as it can deploy bigger and more variety of missile.

But I would have to say the strongest point of Type 054A is the anti-sub system. The VLS is capable of firing anti-sub torpedo missile. With tow sonar, bow sonar plus one Harbin Z9A helo, Type054A is a very good submarine hunter.

It may have Mk 41 but US will never allow sale of such missiles to South Korea so your point is moot.

A Type 54A frigate shadowed by Taiwanese and Japanese warships.


TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Taiwanese and Japanese warships reportedly teamed up Saturday (May 1) to shadow a Chinese frigate sailing near their respective countries' waters.

On Saturday, the ship-tracking Twitter account August posted a satellite image showing a People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) Type 054A frigate prowling the waters of the East China Sea. Giving chase to its south was an Abukuma-class destroyer escort from the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force.

Southwest of the frigate, what appeared to be either a Kee Lung class destroyer or Chi Yang class frigate from the Taiwan Navy could be seen shadowing the Chinese warship. When the satellite image was captured, the Chinese frigate was estimated to be about 125 kilometers from Keelung City, 132 km from the Japanese island of Yonaguni, and only 62 km from the disputed Diaoyutai Islands.

That same day, Japan's Ministry of Defense (MoD) announced the encounter and released footage of the PLAN warship. According to the MoD, the Chinese frigate had been spotted about 150 km northeast of Miyakojima on April 30.


The MoD stated that the Chinese frigate had then headed west and sailed between Keelung and Yonaguni on Saturday before heading north toward the East China Sea.

As its position on Saturday was near the Diaoyutai Islands, Japan's Maritime Self Defense Force not only sent a destroyer but also a Kawasaki P-1 maritime patrol plane and a Lockheed P-3 Orion maritime surveillance aircraft to monitor the ship from the air.

During a meeting of the Legislative Yuan on Monday (May 3), Taiwan's Minister of Defense Chiu Kuo-cheng (邱國正) said that the military is fully aware of the enemy's latest movements, whether they are near Keelung or other areas. He stated that "as long as they are within the scope of our surveillance and reconnaissance and scope of our responsibility, including the contingency zone, we will definitely send ships or aircraft to deal with it."

Chiu added that the military will not announce which nations it cooperates with, but when it comes to self-defense, "We will carry out whatever surveillance and investigation is necessary.

Taiwanese and Japanese must be jealous of Chinese sailors. They don't have a frigate as advanced and powerful as Type 054A.

Agree. Type 054 is a well balanced, Multi-Role ship, like J-10 or F-16s in the airforce for instance. Whereas the Russian Class basically represents Russian Philosophy on its Navy, which basically displays POWER in a particular area.

The only exception are the Russian Cruisers, which are so heavily weaponized and fortified that they can alone take on a US Aircraft Carrier Battle Group.
