Li Jun, CSTC's senior manager of sales for Asia and Latin America, told IHS Jane's on 16 April that the C28A's hull has been specifically designed to reduce the vessel's radar cross section. The ship's exhausts have also been moved towards its waterline to reduce its infrared signature.

The corvette will be armed with one NORINCO 76 mm main gun and two Type 730 seven-barrel 30 mm guns that will be used as the ship's close-in weapon system (CIWS).
