The 41st Type 056 (Jiangdao-class) corvette appears to have entered service with China’s People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN).

A photograph posted on the website of the municipal government of Nanchong shows a Type 056 flying the usual commissioning flags, with the ship’s company paraded on the jetty and lining the side.

The picture accompanies a report stating that city representatives visited the ship on 1 June to mark its naming after the city.
