    I don't think the chineses use bunker oil. From all the photos we've got, most of them depict a pretty clear exhaust smoke.

    This is the first time I have seen a replenishment-at-sea exercise on a wharf.

    Don’t think it’s an exercise, more like a test to make sure everything works before trying this out at sea.

    I agree. Its no coincidence that Type 052D no. 117 --- damn she's out of Qingdao so soon after hosting Xi Jing Ping --- and Type 051D no. 116 are in Dalian right now. Both ships are not in the destroyer fitting pool so its got nothing to do with maintenance. I would say the locations for 116 and 117 is that they are closer to the side of Dalian where the carriers are. My thoughts is that there is going to be a trial or exercise with Carrier 002 along with the Type 901 coming soon.

    What you guys think of this post by Icloo
    The two ships are now connected by cable and fuel/water transfer hose.

    But this is replenishing at the dock and not on high sea I figure they migh want to do it latter but first come first they have to "fill it up"

    Has anyone ever seen such a thing in another navy: replenishment-at-sea exercise across a harbor quay? Fascinating!
