Latest "gutted" photos of the Type 052 Luhu class DDG 112 Harbin.

Funnel removed, Towed Array shielded, Electronics gone. Clearly, it is more than a standard mid-life refit.

Hopefully this refit will give us an idea of how the PLAN will refit it's older vessels to a newer standard.

It could however be rebuilt for coastal patrol as a Coast Guard vessel, not unlike the older Jianghu frigates - although that would be a terrible waste of her gas-turbine engines.

What I'm hoping to see new CIWS, vertical-launched SAM's, maybe a RAM-like missile system, better ASW and electronic outfit (new radars, etc).
