Type 056 Corvette "Ji'an" (left) received some minor modifications compared to earlier corvettes of the class.
     
The warship was built by inheriting the building mode, hull structure and technical performance of the warships of the same type, and through minor adjustment of the installation positions of some equipment for more convenient operation and maintenance. In addition, the partial optimization of its bulwarks and mast makes the warship more delicate and graceful.

It is learned that the corvette “Bengbu”, China's first type-056 (first ship of the class), sailed to sea 10 months ago right from Shanghai.
