    The media said China will build the 052D type destroyer similar to the U.S. Aegis destroyers | Inside China

    This must be amateur artist impression... it has no smoke stacks or EW radar.

    052D class is only 1000 tons more than 052c class, and the 10,000 tons one mentioned here is rumored as 055 class. The project no. 055 was once used to name the destroyer developed in 1970s~1980s but was proved to be totally a failed try caused by lacking of both technology and finance. Now the project no. is simply reused.

    Maybe the Chinese have designed a smokeless propulsion system and the whole ship is an EW radar? ;)

    They are great innovators!
