According to PLA Daily’s report today, China launched its fully homegrown 10,000-ton class destroyer at Jiangnan Shipyard, Shanghai.
The new warship has entirely been made by China independently. It is a large warship with a series of key technologies armed with new-type air defense, missile defense, anti-ship and anti-submarine weapons. It is very sensitive in information collection and has strong air- and missile-defense and sea strike capabilities.
The launch will be followed by equipment fine-tuning and navigation tests.
