Good bye Type 051 Luda class DDG 131 "Nanjing"

it seems that the PLAN just had another ceremony -- this time for the decommissioning of DDG 131 "Nanjing" after 35 years of service. (here).  Just don't write-off the Nanjing just yet; it will be recommissioned as a civilian CMS ship after a refit.

It is my understanding that another early example of type 051 will also be decommissioned and transferred to civilian authorities, specifically the Nanning (#162).
