The Type 054A (NATO codename Jiangkai II) frigate is a Chinese multi-role warship that entered service with the People’s Liberation Army Navy in 2007. It is a development of the Type 054 frigate, using the same hull but with improved sensors and weapons.

The Type 054A was first revealed while under construction at the Guangzhou-based Huangpu Shipyard in 2005.

The Type 054A carries HQ-16 medium-range air defence missiles in a VLS system. The HQ-16 provides area air defence from all engagement angles up to a range of 50km, a considerable improvement over the HQ-7 carried on the Type 054 which have inferior range and limited engagement angles.

The 4 AK-630 close-in weapon systems (CIWS) of the Type 054 were replaced with 2 Type 730 CIWS on the Type 054A. The autonomous Type 730 provides improved reaction time against close-in threats.

The Type 054A retains its predecessor’s stealth features, including sloped hull design, radar absorbent materials and a clean profile.

An improved variant, sometimes called the Type 054A+, launched from Huangpu Shipyard in 2009.

Cost: ¥ 1.58 billion (USD 250 million)
Displacement: 4,053 tonnes (full)(CCTV report), 3,600 tonnes (standard)
Length: 134 m (440 ft)
Speed: 30 kn estimated
Range: 8025 nautical miles estimated

After 6 months on the seas off the coast of Somalia, PLA Navy Type 054A missile frigates FFG 529-Zhoushan and FFG 530-Xuzhou sailed back into Chinese waters for a port call to Hong Kong.

The two advanced ships were part of a task force on anti-piracy missions in the Gulf of Aden and are sailing back to their home port in Zheijiang province. The historical task force is the PLA Navy’s first overseas combat mission.
