Each Abteilung is composed of 3 six-gun batteries to 18 tubes. With 21 Abteilungs, we are looking at 378 guns available for action in the PLA. While they might appear to be dated but when guided with modern fire control solutions and the new laser guided rounds, they can be a force to be reckoned with. In addition, they are inexpensive and easy to maintain, perfect for a cheap army that can't afford a wholesale, across the board modernization. Expect them to be sticking around for awhile longer.
