CNS Sizhou (132) is a modern Chinese Navy (the "People's Liberation Army Navy" - PLAN) guided-missile-destroyer. The design is related to the Type 052DL destroyer standard, developed primarily for Blue Water service as an independent operating vessel or as part of a main ocean-going task force. Built by the specialists at the Jiangnam Shipyard of Shanghai, the warship was launched on December 19th, 2018 and formally commissioned into service with the PLAN in 2020.

The Type 52DL destroyer is a sub-group of the Type 052D model, known to NATO as the "Luyang III-class". The ships are dimensionally larger than the preceding Type 052C sub-class with systems modifications made to the Active, Electronically-Scanned Array (AESA) radar and enhancements to the Vertical Launching System (VLS) missile suite. The AESA fit is the Type 346A series and the ship is also outfitted with the Type 518 unit. Type 052 ships have been succeeded (on paper) by the Type 055 design.

Aboard is a crew complement of 280 personnel. Dimensions of the ship include a running length of 528 feet, a beam of 57 feet, and a draught 20 feet. The propulsion scheme is made up of a COmbined Diesel-Of-Gas (CODOG) arrangement driving twin shafts under stern. The warship carries its own sonar solution for submarine-hunting in the form of a hull-mounted unit and a towed array.

Armament includes a single 130mm turreted deck gun, 1 x 24-cell HQ-10 short-ranged Surface-to-Air Missile (SAM) system. The VLS is comprised of a 64-cell missile system capable of attacking air- and land-based target. Rounding out the suite is the Type 1130 CIWS (Close-In Weapon System) to deal with inbound aerial threats at short-to-medium ranges.

The vessel's profile is consistent with the class design. The turret takes its place at the forecastle with the bridge superstructure directly aft. Aft of the bridge section are the enclosed, low-profile smoke funnels. The radar sits over midships. Over the stern is a combination hangar-helipad allowing for the support of a single Harbin Z-20 navy helicopter or similar.
