    Here is another pic. They need to put money in their mouth and start getting serious about Taiwan contingency. Produce this by tens
    The 6th LPD Type 071, landing ship moving more than 20,000t full load, was admitted to active service yesterday by the Chinese Navy at the same time as the 10th destroyer Type 052D. Two other class buildings are currently under construction.

    I think in case of a Taiwan incursion they will have more need for troop landing ships which can operate in those waters than more of these ships. I think they have enough.
    I have my doubts about the efficiency of the LCACs. They are good for counter-insurgency operations but for a mass troop landing they seem inefficient and not robust enough.
    One could argue that an helicopter carrier would be more useful than more LPDs as well.
    In case China ever attempted to invade Taiwan you can bet the PLA would requisition civilian RORO ships.

    I think PLAN use of amphibious assets would be used to secure a port or beechead

    The PLA would then follow with its own RORO fleet which is pretty huge

    Bohai ferry fleet alone is gigantic

    China could easily lift 200,000 PLA soldiers to Taiwan and 1000s of vehicles if needed

    But before that the 2nd artillery corps would pretty much make sure all enemy’s is flattened before a landing

    Type 071 LPD would be used for over the horizon amphibious landings that is what they are designed for speed and surprise

    Such a move would be insane overkill and likely not monetary feasible for such an operation. If Beijing decides to directly move against authorities in Taipei, they would first take out rockets etc. that can hit cities with the rocket force and air force. Then follow up with a mass arrest of involved people by armed police backed up by a small contigent of airbornes and marines to disable eventual weapon caches.

    Type 071s are ideal for that purpose, being able to drop a few hundred elite troops to keep the order and smoke out heavily armed rebels while the necessary arrests are carried out. Airbornes can quickly reach hotspot buildings and clear the ground for armed officers arriving by helicopters.

    南缆233. Based on the convention, it's a cable-laying ship (or some other task related to undersea cable) of the South Sea Fleet.

    Type 071 LPD's hangar can accommodate four Z8 helicopters. During war time, maximum number could be six Z8, with two Z8 on the landing deck, leaving one lift-off point empty.
