    These three parking positions must be left free during landings:

    Oh, I missed a position. Four positions must be left free during landings:

    They are all inside the landing area.

    For years we have seen Type 054A and Type 052D and Type 903 tanker doing foreign visits

    Dont get me wrong great ships and occasionally even the LPD has shown up

    But now we will start seeing carrier, Type 901 and Type 055

    Big boys are now in town

    Imagine a surface action group consisting of

    4 x Type 055
    1 x Type 901
    1 x SSN

    Transiting the Suez Canal

    That will have some serious faces looking

    I have never seen the Type 056 operating with larger ships other than the Type 054A, so that pic is a plus.

    Given that the picture is taken near harbor, it's not necessary operating together.
