    Why it should be I read the report It doesn't say anything about defeat It said China does not have transport capability for invasion as now But right now they are bulking up on destroyer and frigate, sub etc It is too early to build up the LPD The reunification cannot be postponed forever. At one time they have to decide either now or never
    They didn't build up the transport because they don't want to create alarm as yet
    I say in another 5 years China will start built the transport capacity in earnest

    A question

    What’s the length of the deck? And what’s the dimensions of the Z8?

    Could they have 4 units on deck rotars switched on ready to take off?

    To be honest I do not think sea lift capability is a problem.
    The Chinese military could simply use the commercial RORO ships to increase transport capability.

    The issue is how to secure the airspace and sea lanes during an invasion.
    Without air supremacy over the straits an invasion is impossible.

    For this the Chinese need the destroyers and frigates to guarantee safe passage of the transport ships.
    They also need long distance strike power and for this transportation aircraft and bombers are also necessary.

    Why is the well deck blurred?

    Is it a LCAC carrying a load?

    Is PLAN deliberately trying to annoy me?

    I don't see any PS blurring. I do see light bloom at the end of the well, where the door is somewhat opened. The bright light is overexposing the camera sensor at that part of the image, robbing it of most details.

    The length of the flight deck of the Type 071 stern helicopter is about 70 meters, 20 meters in width. It can comfortably meet the simultaneous take-off and landing of two medium-sized helicopters of more than 10 tons (Z-8s).
