The commissioning of 056 class covette 586 in WuhanHow could we have missed this one?
While everyone is focusing on the four Type056 Class corvettes under construction in Guangzhou and Shanghai, a fifth type 056 corvette is now commissioned in Wuhan. This unexpected development is suggesting that there are three known Chinese shipyards involved with the 056 class corvette project.
Expect a long and serial run of this new class of ship.
