Rekordny was transferred to the People's Liberation Army Navy from the USSR in October 1954 along with three other former Gnevny-class destroyers of the Soviet Navy as part of a larger transfer deal which also saw the transfer of submarines, minesweepers and torpedo boats[1] after being with the USSR throughout the Second World War, during which she shot down two Nazi aeroplanes[2].

The ship was commissioned into the Chinese navy as the destroyer Anshan (鞍山号), an industrial city in the Manchurian province of Liaoning. She was assigned the pennant number 101. During the 38 years it served the PLAN, it was visited by nine foreign dignitaries as well as two Communist Chinese leaders: Zhou Enlai and Deng Xiaoping

She was decommissioned in April 1992 and anchored at the Naval Museum at Tsingtao.
