    Wow a export order ?

    Didn’t Malaysia originally want one ?

    Big news

    Biggest naval export for China

    Hope they haven’t request the Type 726

    No worry. They surely can count on you for 726 reminder - three meals a day, seven days a week. :D

    Back to topic: had NOT seen comparable exposure of this big news at internet. The only rumor I saw says the deal is around 4 billions Ban, barely equivalent to one S26T (039A/B) submarine they ordered. So it should be far from calling it "the biggest naval export" for China, one single ship individually or whole deal (even in tons, 8 Pakistan submarines can suppress one 071). I also highly doubt 071 can cost more than S26T - despite these days, almost impossible to find apple-to-apple comparison, considering local industry offset, infrastructure & training, subsidiary, etc(damn!).

    Little off-topic: must say, I'm shocked RTN dare to invest on 071, with NO sight in horizon how they are going to do with Chakri Naruebet.

    By the way, a couple weeks back, I commented that a 071 costs less a 054A. That comment had caused quite stir and disbelief, before a few members did some digging and calculation to realize that it's not an absurd idea. LOL. ;-)

    With the export to Thailand of 071E, it should shed some light on the real cost of 071. We'll see.

    Why is S26T shown along the 071E?

    This 071E is a bit smaller thatn the original 071. The section behind the somestack has been removed to make it shorter (and lighter?) and it lacks a pair of CIWS.

    It’s well known for long that Type 071 LPD is not that expensive since the info was posted few years back on the plan warship cost

    It’s not the cost it’s the size

    Length of 071E is 210 m, beam is 28 m. Same as 071.

    It looks like 071E deal to Thailand is worth USD130 million, not too far from the 1 billion Yuan that I mentioned before.

    If it is 130M, it is a bargain.
