People's Liberation Army Navy

Overview

PLA Navy Facilities

Ambitious Chinese plans to acquire at least a pair of Russian Sovremenny-class guided missile destroyers, as well as to construct a number of other modern ships, remain future ambitions rather than present achievements. Currently, only seven Chinese ships, of the Luhai, Luhu, and Jiangwei classes, approach world standards for modern major surface combatants.
