CNS Sanya (574) is one of the available Type 054A-class frigates serving the modern Chinese Navy (formally known as the "People's Liberation Army Navy" = PLAN). They are known to the West as the Jiangkai II-class. The group consists of some fifty total planned vessels with current (2023) numbers having reached thirty hulls. As frigates, these are multi-missions Blue Water solutions equipped with all-modern systems, sensors, and weaponry - the latter to include guided-missiles.

Sanya was built by the specialists at the Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding shipyard of Shanghai and launched on November 30th, 2012. She was formally commissioned into service on December 13th, 2013 and currently (2023) maintains an active presence in the Chinese surface fleet.

The vessel displaces 4,470 ton (short) under full load and has a bow-to-stern length of 440 feet with a beam measuring 52 feet. Power is from a CODAD (Combined Diesel-And-Diesel) arrangement involving 4 x Shaanxi (Pielstick) 16 PA 6V 280 STC marine diesels (originating from Germany) developing 28,200 horsepower to 2 x Shafts astern. This gives the hull an ocean-going speed up to 27 knots and a range out to 4,400 miles.

Aboard is a crew of 165. Systems include the Type 382 radar, Type 344 fire control radar, and the Type 347G fire control radar. Navigation is aided y 2 x Racal RM-1290 I-band units. The MGK-335 serves as the active-passive sonar suite. The ship also carries an H/SJG-206 towed array sonar unit.

Armament is led by a single 76mm PJ26 Dual-Purpose (DP) turreted deck gun. This is backed by a 32-cell Vertical Launch System (VLS) housing HQ-16 Surface-to-Air Missiles (SAMs) or Yu-8 Anti-Submarine ROCkets (ASROCs). There are also 2 x 4-cell C-803 anti-ship cruise missiles, 2 x 30mm Type 730 Close-In Weapon Systems (CIWSs), 2 x 324mm Yu-7 triple-tube torpedo launchers, 2 x 240mm 6-tube Type 87 ASROC launchers, and 2 x 18-tube Type 726 decoy launchers.

Over the rear of the hull is supported a single Harbin Z-9C or Kamov Ka-28 "Helix" medium-lift navalized helicopter for Over-the-Horizon (OtH) work. A full-service hangar facility is integrated into the ship's design.

All told, the vessel can take on any surface sortie required of it due to its installed systems and weaponry. This includes independent missions as well as fleet-centric types. The warship has participated in various local and international fleet reviews, exercises, and training endeavors but has yet to be used in anger during war time - leaving her true potential largely untested.
