CNS Changchun (150) belongs to the Type 053C-class (NATO: Luyang II-class) of fighting destroyers serving the modern People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) of China. The warship was launched on October 28th, 2010 and formally commissioned into service on January 31st, 2013. As built, she displaces 7,000 tons under load and sports a 48-cell Vertical Launch System (VLS) as its primary weapon. The vessel is assigned to the East Sea Fleet as remains in active service as of this writing (2023).

The Type 052C-class was constructed over the period spanning 2002 to 2015 and resulted in six hulls completed. Commissioned service of the group began in 2005.

Changchun has a running length of 508.5 feet with a beam of 55.8 feet, and a draught of 19.7 feet. Power is through a COmbined Diesel-Or-Gas (CODOG) arrangement involving 2 x DA80 gas turbines coupled with 2 x MTU 20V 956TB92 diesel engines. All told, this drives the warship to speeds of 29 knots out to a range of 4,500 nautical miles.

Aboard is a complement of 280 and a modest air arm is supported. A single navalized helicopter can be launched and retrieved from the stern-based helipad / hangar deck area, this rotorcraft providing critical Over-the-Horizon (OtH) capabilities as well as an anti-ship / anti-submarine measure. Supported types include the Chinese Harbin Z-9 and the Soviet-Russian Kamov Ka-28 models.

Installed systems include the Type 346 and Type 517 air-search radars, the Type 364 air- and surface-search radar, and the Type 347G(2) fire control radar. The Electronic Warfare (EW) suite is made up of the NRJ-6A system.

At the heart of the design is the 48-cell VLS supporting the HHQ-9 Surface-to-Air Missile (SAM) family. Beyond this is the 100mm PJ-87 turreted deck gun, 8 x YJ-62 anti-ship cruise missiles, 6 x Torpedo tubes, and 4 x Multiple Launch Rocket Systems (MLRSs). The warship can, therefore, deter or neutralize most any at-sea threat.

Outwardly, the vessel showcases clean lines with a focus on stealth. The hull superstructure is integrated seamlessly with the hull line. The forecastle is clear of protrusions save for the deck gun emplacement and the bridge superstructure towers aft ahead of midships. The main mast is of the enclosed type and seats all manner of sensors, communications, and processing systems. The smoke funnels are of a low-profile, enclosed design and positioned amidships. The aft superstructure section houses the helicopter hangar and seats the anti-ship missile launchers as well as the aft-mast.

At present, CNS Changchun (150) homeports out of Zhoushan outside of Ningbo, north of Taiwan, west of southern Japan, and southwest of South Korea. This gives the warship unfettered access to the waters of the East China Sea.
