China has stolen another Russian development

China is a substitute for your own destroyers (and least-class ships) 100-mm gun Type 210 on locally developed 130-mm PJ-38. Type 210 is essentially a licensed version of the French 100 mm naval gun Compact (19-ton and automatic system with a range of 17 km and the rate of fire of 78 rounds per minute). China upgraded the gun to fire laser-guided munitions, and unguided munitions with a rate of up to 90 shots per minute. But the upgraded gun Type 210, H/PJ87 there are problems with reliability.

Bimbo 130-mm Cannon has borrowed a lot from the Russian naval guns such as automatic sea 130-mm gun AK-130. Bimbo Chinese 130-mm gun for the first time appeared in a new destroyer type 52D. The weight of the tower of the new instruments is more than 50 tons, and range — about 29.5 km, and the highest rate of fire — 40 rounds per minute. Can be used with laser-guided bombs, but, in the main, ordinary gun firing unguided projectiles.
