The destroyer “Zhengzhou” is the new-generation guided missile destroyer independently researched, developed, designed and manufactured by China. It is the second warship of its kind to enter the service of the East China Sea Fleet following its predecessor, the destroyer “Changchun”.

According to the briefing made by Li Yigang, captain of the guided missile destroyer “Zhengzhou”, the officers and men on board are able to skillfully operate all equipment, and have outstanding performance in the evaluations of various practical operations based on the previous tests and trial navigation.
