CSTC representatives at DSA 2014 explained to Navy Recognition that the ship would be about 120 meters in length, a breadth of 14.4 meters and a draft of 3.87 meters for a displacement of about 2880 tons.

The three corvettes currently being built at a shipyard located near Shanghai will receive a mix of Chinese and Western systems. The hull mounted sonar will be of Chinese origin, but Algeria has selected Thales Smart-S Mk2 3D air and surface surveillance radar and Kelvin Hughes for the navigation radar.

According to the CSTC representatives, the weapons fit will be of Chinese origin exclusively and will consist in:
- A single barreled 76mm main gun
- 8x C802 anti-ship missiles
- 1x FM90N launcher with 8x surface to air missiles
- 2x Type 730 CIWS located on top of the helicopter hangar

The corvette has some stealth attributes, such as the exhaust gases funnels located right on the water line on the sides of the hull in order to reduce its IR signature.

The LPD design (no project name was given to us) may accommodate 360 embarked troops in addition to its crew of 130 sailors (plus 15 for the aviation detachment). The LPD's endurance is in excess of 45 days. Two S-70 type helicopters can fit in the hangar while the deck may accept one CH-47 Chinook helicopter. The CSTC representatives could not give us the overall length of this LPD project but gave us a displacement of 22,000 tons.
