The Anshan-class destroyers were the People's Liberation Army Navy's (PLAN) first destroyers. They were ex-Soviet Gnevny-class destroyers purchased in the 1950s. The Chinese later added HY-2 anti-ship missiles and removed some of the torpedo tubes, and redesignated as Type 6607.
The Anshan's were withdrawn from active service by the 1990s, but retained as training (# 104) and museum ships (# 101). The PLAN retains ownership through PLAN funded institutions.
After 1949 PLAN negotiated with Britain through HK to buy some second-hand ships and boats but the route is cut by Korean War.So they turned to USSR to buy 4 wornout destroyers with 17 tons of gold.
