    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.

    Rumours have it that a 3rd Type 901 modules have been spotted, from satellite

    Let’s wait and see

    965 from another angle.

    What's that odd-looking large pod (somewhat egg-shaped) just before the two aft gantries? Is it part of a rotatable crane?

    The 3rd Type 901, a Chinese oil tanker of over 40,000 tons designed to support aircraft carriers and aviation groups, is currently being final assembled at GSI Shipyard in Guangzhou.
