Events of The Last ShipEdit
Peng in shown on board when he receives the new that the Sea Dragon and his missile battery were destroyed. (“Paradise”)
Henan is tasked with providing support and defense to President Peng and his soldiers while they raid and destroy items at the Japanese National Archives in Tokyo. In order for land teams from the Nathan James to invade the archives and defeat Peng, a team consisting of Captain Slattery, Master Chief Jeter, Sasha Cooper, Lt. Carlton Burk, and GM2 Eric Miller infiltrate the Henan and take control of it's bridge and CIC. After Tom Chandler and the land crew defeat Peng and his men, he tells Takehaya that the Henan is now under his command. (“Legacy”)
Henan was used as a decoy and was sunk by the rogue regional leaders as they thought it was the Nathan James. (“Resistance”)
- By the Chinese naval ship naming rule, destroyers are named after medium/large cities. Instead, Henan is a province, which by convention would be reserved for a cruiser or a carrier. The Sea Dragon and the second ship in Tokyo bay, were presumably named respectively as Wangfeng (lit. King Peak) (according to the writings on her aft), and Fenghuang (lit. Phoenix) (according to her communications after Henan's capture). Apparently none of them followed the rule but the ships (or even the cities) may have been renamed after the plague.
