China's 30th Type 056 Corvette (Jiangdao class) Commissioned in PLAN East Sea Fleet

A commissioning, naming and flag-presenting ceremony of the new Ningde (hull number 510) Type 056 Corvette (Jiangdao class) of the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN or Chinese Navy) was held solemnly today at the Xiamen Naval Base (a port city on China’s southeast coast, across a strait from Taiwan). The event means the vessel is officially commissioned to the PLAN. Ningde is the thirtieth Type 056 Corvette delivered to the PLAN fleet.
