DDG 161 Changsha decommissioned on Aug 26, 2008 after 33 years of service and that makes it the third Type 051 Luda class decommissioned this year.

8月26日上午10时,海军驱逐舰某支队军港上空汽笛长鸣,经历了33年的战风斗浪,海军“长沙”舰圆满地完成了共和国赋予的历史使命,光荣退出现役。该支队全体官兵及历任“长沙”舰舰领导怀着无比依恋的心情,在码头与朝夕相处的战舰告别。

海军“长沙”舰:1981年服役,隶属海军南海舰队,舷号161。属于新中国自行建造的第一级初具远洋作战能力的导弹驱逐舰——051型驱逐舰。“长沙”舰多次圆满完成多项重大任务,有着光荣的历史传统。

I really hope the PLAN do the similar thing as that of UK and US navies that keeps the name of the ships during upgrades (c.f. USS Enterprise). This generates more history and helps troop moral.
