Chinese carrier-on-land facility adds destroyer
China has made several additions to its so-called carrier-on-land facility, including a mock-up of the People’s Liberation Army Navy’s (PLAN) planned next-generation guided-missile destroyer, according to recent satellite imagery. The January pictures show the mock-up of the planned Type-55 guided-missile destroyer – that will likely be a test bed for a new radar system – has been completed as well as the addition to unknown building on the grounds.
