CNS Jinan (152) is an all-modern guided-missile destroyer of the Type 052C-class. The warship was laid down during December 2011 by shipbuilder Jiangnan Shipyard of Shanghai and launched in January of 2012. Commissioned on December 22nd, 2014, the 7,000-ton warship currently (2023) homeports out of Zhoushan and sails with the East Sea Fleet.

The Type 052C-class is recognized by NATO under the Luyang III-class name. Sister ships include Lanzhou (170), Haikou (171), Changchun (150), Zhengzhou (151), and Xi'an (153) - all in active service as of this writing (2023). The Type 052C differs from earlier Type 052 offerings in carrying Active, Electronically-Scanned Array (AESA) radar and having a modern Vertical Launch System (VLS) supporting Surface-to-Air Missiles (SAMs) for airspace denial / deterrence.

Destroyers mark the largest named warships of any naval fleet just behind aircraft and helicopter carriers and ahead of frigates. The guided-missile destroyer classification indicates a primary reliance on missile-based weaponry for Jinin. Destroyers are multi-mission "Blue Water" surface combatants designed to operate independently or as part of the main fighting fleet.

Externally, the ship is given an all-modern appearance with a clean design form featuring an unbroken hull line running from aft of the forecastle to just ahead of the stern-based helipad area. The bridge section overlooks the forecastle and gives a commanding view over the bow of the ship. The main mast is enclosed and seats communications, processing, and sensor equipment critical to the general function of the vessel. Aft of the bridge superstructure area is the low-profile, enclosed smoke funnels. The aft-superstructure section features a secondary mast, opposing Anti-Ship Missile (ASM) launchers, and a full-service helicopter hangar.

Jinan operates a Kamov Ka-28 / Harbin Z-9 or similar medium-lift navy helicopter from her stern section.

Dimensions include a running length of 508.5 feet, a beam of 55.8 feet, and a draught of 19.7 feet.

Jinan is powered through a COmbined Diesel-Or-Gas (CODOG) to maximize fuel efficiency during the main actions of cruising and dashing. The propulsion scheme combines the power of 2 x DA80 gas turbines with 2 x MTU 20V 956TB92 diesels driving twin shafts under stern. This gives the vessel a maximum speed (in ideal conditions) of 29 knots out to a range of 4,500 nautical miles (5,200 miles).

Aboard is a crew of 280 personnel.

Armament centers on the HHQ-9 SAM weapon of which 48 reloads can be carried. This is in addition to the 2 x 4-cell YJ-62 ASMs which can be used in the land-attack cruise missile role. The destroyer also has a single 100mm PJ-87 turreted deck gun over the forecastle and 2 x 30mm Type 730 Close-In Weapon Systems (CIWSs) as ballistic-minded solutions. The Weapons suite is rounded out by 6 x Torpedo launchers and 4 x Multiple Rocket Launchers (MRLs).

Installed systems include the Type 346 air-search / fire control radar, the Type 517 air-search radar, and the Type 364 air-and-surface-search radar. The turret's function is guided by the Type 344 radar and aided by the Type 347G(2) series radar. The YJ-62 missiles are directed by the Type 366 radar unit. The NRJ-6A suite offers Electronic Warfare (EW) capabilities.

For her time on the high seas, Jinan has participated in global voyages as well as local and joint exercises though has yet to be proven in action.
