    So it effectively "winched" itself back into the sea?

    I wouldn't be standing anywhere near that cable :)

    I like some of the names of these ships. Google translation? They are accurate, don't get me wrong.

    So, I have this for the last two that have been commissioned:

    981 大别山/ Dabie Shan WuChong Shipyard East Sea Fleet Active
    982 大韩珊/Taihan Shan WuChong Shipyard East Sea Fleet Active

    That makes eleven Type 072As with the twelfth launched and fitting out.

    And according to that report, there will ultimately now be sixteen Type 072As (if I read it right) with four more on order.

    That's pretty impressive because that will mean a total of 33 Type 072 LSTs of all sorts and that is a long production run from the PLAN.

    They really like that basic design...of which, IMHO, the Type 072A is by far the best.

    I have with translation :
    981大别山 : Dabie Mountains
    982太行山 : Taihang Mountains

    Maybe you think but Wuchang is not a part of the name but a port in fact Shangai Wusong but wrong they are based to Shanghai-Qiujiang, i am sure.

    Who told me there are only about ten years ago i have need speak Chinese :rolleyes: :D

    I thought that WuChang was meant to be the yard where they were built.
