Description: The Type 054 class frigate has been designed as the replacement for aging and obsolete Type 053 frigates within the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN). Type 054, NATO codename Jiangkai, are 3,400-ton class ships featuring stealthy design with reduced radar cross section and infrared signature for enhanced survivability. In addition, these ships are suitable for offshore and oceanic/blue water operations. Hudong-Zhonghua Shipyard and Guangzhou Huangpu Shipyard are responsible for the construction of the Type 054 frigates. The lead ship, FFG 525 Ma'anshan, was commissioned by PLAN in 2005.

The Type 054A class frigates is an improved version of Type 054 equipped with a Russian long-range search and fire control radar system and a Chinese-made 32-cell vertical launching system (VLS) at the bow. Type 054A, NATO codename Jiangkai-II, are multipurpose ships with enhanced anti-aircraft (AAW) capabilities compared to existing frigates in service with the PLAN. The stealthy design has been improved as well. The Type 054A lead ship might be commissioned by 2008. Overall, these ships would be equivalent to Western built frigates.

A vertical-launch version of 9M38/HQ-16 medium-range surface-to-air missile would be provided to the Type 054A class frigate enhancing its air defense capabilities. In addition to the 32 9M38/HQ-16 missiles, the ship's weapon system may include eight (2x4) YJ-83 anti-ship missiles; a 100mm gun at the bow mounted on a stealthy turret; and four Type 730 close-in weapon systems. The CODAD-based propulsion system comprises two French-made diesel engines developing 21,000-hp and two secondary diesel engines developing 8,840-hp. Type 054A leverages the flight deck and hangar from Type 054. In 2018 China started the construction of four Type 054AP frigates for Pakistan.
