    What?
    • Dec 2008
    • 1818

    New variant of the 052D (052D+?)

    1 - Lengthened helo pad (for Z-20?)
    2 - New survaillence radar (AESA with 12 modules?)
    3 - Type-1130 CIWS instead of the Type-730

    A bit bigger

      Nope, exactly the same! The picture is from a slightly different perspective. The flight deck is the same length, the yagi is parked at a different angle and there is a cover over the radar on the ciwis slightly distorting how it looks.

        I'm not sure if quantum was trying to suggest that the two images were showing 052D vs 052DG or if he was saying both pictures were 052DG and merely pointing out the same features on two different photos of the same ship.



        In any case, while the yagi is different to what we've seen before and the helipad is of course lengthened (which we've known for ages), the 1130 on the bow is not new to the 052DG. I think they've had 1130 since JN's 8th 052D and DL's 3rd 052D.

          Yes, they are exactly the same. Same improved 052DL taken from slightly different angles. It is not a comparision of two different ships. It just shows the changes. I should have made that clearer. My bad for the confusion.

                          Finally a better view of the two,

                          I am more interested in the new surveillance radar,

                            After only a short trip, the 002 carrier is back a Dalian. However, there are black tyre markings on the runway, so touch and go tests were done.
