DDG 131 (Nanjing) decommissioned today.

This old Type 051 Luda class workhorse of the 6th Destroyer Flotilla, East Sea entered service in 1977. After 35 years of service, it is time for goodbye (here) and (here)

While some late model Type 051s are now sporting the updated C802 SSM and HQ7 SAM.  Poor  131 was never allowed such treatment.
