    very impressive vessels, but have to admit to also being surprised at the lack of an onboard helicopter flight. Is this simply because they do not have a helicopter appropriate to the Vertrep role?

    The PLA overall has a high demand for helicopters and their domestic production capacity has yet to meet their demand.

    That said I'm not sure how anyone is able to confidently tell whether the 901 in the picture has a helicopter onboard or not given the hangar doors are shut.


    The side "doors" on the side of the hull are not hangars for UAVs but rather they are passageways to allow thoroughfare of cargo throughout the length of the ship. If one looks at the bow bridge superstructure it also has a similar passage way on each side.
