CNS Jiaozuo (163) serves as one of the 25 in-service Type 052D (Luyang III-class) guided-missile destroyers of the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN). The warship if a 7,500 ton development with a 64-cell missile loadout making it a potent player in Chinese actions involving the South Sea Fleet. The ship was commissioned in 2022 alongside sisters Shaoxing (134) and Lishui (157).

The Type 052D destroyer features a COmbined Diesel-Or-Gas (CODOG) propulsion arrangement to maximize fuel efficiency in Blue Water operations. The arrangement involves a pair of QC-280 gas turbines with 2 x MTU (German) 20V956TB92 series diesel units both used to drive a twin shaft approach. The warship can make headway in ideal conditions at 30 knots and range out to 4,500 nautical miles.

Dimensionally, the vessel has a running length of 511 feet with a beam of 59 feet and a draught of 19.7 feet. Displacement if 7,500 tons under full loads.

Installed aboard the warship is a mix of sensors and processing systems designed to facilitate searching, tracking, and engagement of at-sea targets. This includes the Type 346A multi-function 3D AESA radar fit, the Type 518 series air-search radar, and the Type 364 air- and surface-search radar. Fire control is directed by the Type 366 installation. Navigation is aided by the Type 760 system. Electronic Warfare (EW) is handled through the H/RJZ-726 countermeasures system as well as 4 x Type 726-4A decoy launchers.

Armament is centered on the 64-cell Vertical Launching System (VLS) capable of supporting HHQ-9 Surface-to-Air Missiles (SAMs), YJ-18 Surface-to-Surface Missiles (SSMs) and/or CY-5 Anti-Ship Missiles (ASMs). There is also a 24-cell HQ-10 SAM launcher for handling short-to-mid-ranged aerial threats. The ballistic-based solution is a 130mm turreted deck gun over the forecastle. The Type 1130 serves as the Close-in Weapon System (CIWS) to deal with extreme short-ranged threats.

Externally, the warship takes on a wholly modern look with attention paid to stealth measures and minimizing protrusions. This leaves the forecastle largely unobstructed around the deck gun. The bridge section is elevated and set behind the trainable air-defense installation. Atop the bridge is a radome and the main mast is integrated to the rear of the structure. The smoke funnels are paired amidships and are of a low-profile enclosed design. Aft of the funnels is a radar installation. The hull superstructure terminates with the full-service hangar facility which, used in conjunction with the helipad, supports a single rotorcraft for over-the-horizon work.
