Type 053 Jianghu-class frigates

Various sources express the usual confusion as to names, numbers and types.

This table is under construciton, as the recent availability of Chinese has prompted a complete re-evaluation of relevant data.

The Hull numbering system is "with Chinese characteristics" and does not reflect actual construction sequence.

Western sources report the 14 Jianghu I vessels were built at Jiangnan, but Chinese sources report that all but one were built at Hudong
