    USN Long Beach was a nuclear powered cruiser of 15,540 tons displacement, according to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Long_Beach_(CGN-9).
    The model looks very crude but such a vessel might be useful to a task force of which most larger vessels are also nuclear powered. That will not be next year.

    USA had built 9 CGNs : Long Beach the more big MSC since WWII except Kirovs, 4 Virginia, Bain bridge and Truxtun nuclear variants of the Belknap and Leahy

    But saying China have idea build a nuclear replenishment ships seems more than arguable and is wacky.
