Beijing: Chinese Navy has commissioned a new-type guided missile destroyer which can be independently used to attack enemies` ships and submarines.
The ship named "Changchun" was commissioned recently at a military port of a troop unit in Zhoushan City of east China`s Zhejiang province, state-run People`s Daily online reported.
The "Changchun" warship is China`s independently-developed new-type closed air defence guided missile destroyer with fully-load displacement of 6,000-odd tons.
It has greater long-range warning, detecting and regional air defence capabilities, and can be used independently or with other naval strength to attack enemies` surface ships and submarines, it said.
It`s name was chosen from one of the previous naval ships decommissioned earlier.
