    Type-055 DDG Large Destroyer Thread

    Post  George1 on Tue Oct 04, 2016 2:28 am

    The Type 055 DDG is thought to be PLAN's next generation destroyer. It is a warship with some very serious firepower to reckon with. The hulls used in the class of Type 052Bs, Type 52Cs are matured hull technology and the new Type 055's hull will be based on the former two classes hull, although it is thought to be certainly larger than those two classes. This all new class of DDG will most likely to feature a more stealthly hull and is speculated to be nuclear powered.



    Prospective specs from the communities highly spectulates the design specifications as belows:

    Tonnage: 12,000 tons fully loaded
    Length: 183m
    Beam: 22m
    Propulsion: Conventional but most probably could be nucleared
    Speed: 35 knots

    Sensors and processing systems:


    New generation of multi-module active phased array radar with a range of 600 km able to monitor and control several hundred targets and automatically distribute targets to various combat units (including the destroyer itself and other combat units). A joint combat data distribution transmission system similar to the Link-16 of US Navy.

    Armament:


    There will be four level of missile interception.

    It will be armed with:
    • One 155 mm gun that will later be replaced by an electromagnetic or laser gun.

    • Two 64VLS for surface to air missiles, cruise missiles, anti submarine missiles and anti ship missiles.

    • Each vertical launch tube of the 64VLS is 16 meters long and can be installed with one to eight missiles. The total number of missiles installed will be 128.

    • The surface to air missiles will be HongQi-10.

    • The anti ship missiles will be better than YJ-83 and YJ-62.

    • WHH004 launch device for new anti-submarine and anti-warship torpedoes.

    • Type 1130 11-barrel CIWS with the rate of fire exceeding 10,000 rounds per minute.

    • There will be two new-type anti-submarine helicopters on the destroyer.

    055 guided missile destroyer being constructed at JNCX shipyard








    Using ps, the comparison of 055 & 052D, one can see the vast difference in length, hence tonnage
