It is believed that its fire power is twice that of the type 052D, the largest and most powerful surface combatant in the navy before type 055.

The type 055 is often considered its own own Cruise class outside China due to its large size and heavy displacement. Western analysts claim that it measures around 180 meters long and 21 m wide, based on satellite images.

li jie, a senior researcher at the PLA Marina, said the ship displaces about 13,000 tons of water. Comparable to El of the United States Ticondero Crucero.

The first in this class-cns Nanchang- was delivered to the Navy in January 2020. The second and third -cns Lhasa and Cns Dalian- were finally commissioned.

The observers said that four of the five of the five types 055 are operated by the North Sea fleet, a fact that indicates that the Qingdao -based fleet has become the new center of the Marine modernization management. The addition of the four type 055s has greatly improved the integral combat capacity of the fleet and its operational range, they said. According to the Navy.
