    The more up-to-date source from China Times gives no specification either - a PLAN ship but not sure whether a DDG or LPD - quite the difference in-between, one might add. So I believe we require further information in this regard.

    So you can think of only one other instance in which it was photographed, and you don't think it's a rare image?

    I think he isn't wrong; it's somewhat rare to get good quality full profile pictures of training ship 83. We've had some pictures of it over the last few years but not many that are high quality like so.

    This Taiwanese article claims it to be a large warship. Either a Mysterious Cruiser or a Type-071

    The large dark cylinders are pressurised tanks for liquefied natural gas. They are to be installed on LPG carriers.
