List of active People's Liberation Army Navy ships is a list of ships currently in active service with the People's Liberation Army Navy. There approximately 470 ships listed in the tables below that constitute active ships, but this figure, however, does not include the various auxiliary vessels of the PLAN, so any comprehensive number of active ships would be much higher. A summary of ship types in service with the PLAN include aircraft carriers, amphibious transport docks, landing ship tanks, destroyers, frigates, corvettes, missile boats, gunboats, mine countermeasures vessels, replenishment oilers and various auxiliaries. In addition, there are also nuclear and conventional submarines presently in service.

All ships and submarines currently in commission with the People's Liberation Army Navy were built in China, with the exception of the Sovremenny-class destroyers, Kilo-class submarines and the aircraft carrier Liaoning. Those vessels were either imported from, or originated from Russia or Ukraine. As of 2008, English-language official Chinese state media no longer uses the term "People's Liberation Army Navy", instead the term "Chinese Navy" along with the usage of the prefix "CNS" for "Chinese Navy Ship" is now employed.[1]

Active ships[edit]

(by type)

* Figure includes auxiliaries such as tugboats and small coastal auxiliaries. Not counted towards total number of active ships.

The tables below list the various ships according to their class and date of commission. The newest class of ship is listed first, with proceeding classes listed afterwards, arranged in order of age. Column headings include: "Type" (i.e Chinese class designation), the types "NATO designation", the ships "Pennant number" (or hull number), the ships name in English and Chinese (Han 中文), ships "Displacement" in tonnes, and the "Fleet" in which it serves (e.g North Sea Fleet, South Sea Fleet and East Sea Fleet). The "Status" column is colour coded, green indicates relatively new and modern classes in service, while red indicates obsolescence and being in the process of decommissioning as newer types are brought into service. A third colour, blue, specifically indicates a ship which is not yet in commission, but has been handed over to the PLAN and is undergoing sea trials. Any ships with a status colour of blue is not counted towards the total number of active ships.

Where a specific piece of information is not known, the cell is left blank.
