China: Has the Chinese Navy just deployed a electromagnetic rail-gun

(Bejing) The US has been making a huge song and dance of late about how well its electromagnetic rail gun is coming along. 

Despite all the praise the above system has still to be fitted onto a ship, however on the otherside of the world, it appears the Chinese have done just that, and fitted a  electromagnetic rail-gun onto a  Type 072III-class vessel which has been spotted with a huge turret which has led many to speculate that the structure in question is an electromagnetic railgun. If true, it would mean that China has become the first country in the world to develop and install the system on a ship.
