The Type 055 destroyer is a class of stealth-guided missile destroyers being constructed for the Chinese People's Liberation Army Navy Surface Force.

Type 055 adopts a conventional flared hull with distinctive stealthy features including an enclosed forecastle that hides mooring points, anchor chains, and other equipment.

The bow and main deckhouse are configured similarly to previous Type 052C/D destroyers. A continuous structure amidship increases internal volume and reduces radar cross-section. The smokestack design reduces both infrared signature and radar cross-section.

Propulsive power is generated by four 28 MW QC-280 gas turbines in combined gas and gas arrangement. Additional power may be provided by six 5 MW QD-50 gas turbines. The maximum speed is estimated to be 30 knots.

The primary armament is missiles carried in 112-cell vertical launching system (VLS); 64 cells forward and 48 cells aft.
