    Good find a 072B the 3th after # 981, 982 very few modifications with 072A seems nothing for size.

    For ESF as the 2 others, 5th AA Flotilla, normaly 15th Sqn/Shanghai-Qiujiang as the 2 others

    2 others in construction.

    That video of the new Type 072 LST, 916, is great and it allows for some still pictures of the newer Type 072s, along with some from my:

    2016 Report and Review of the PLAN

    ...that give us a rare look at the Type 072s as we have not seen them before here on this forum.

    There are now a total of 30 of these vessels in the PLAN inventory, with 2 or 3 more building.

    This post and the next three will give us a good look at them:

    Again...the PLAN is continuing to build these vessels and another 2-3 are planned. Currently there are 30 of them. One of the most successful, and prolific PLAN designs to date.,

    I could be mistaken but that vessel is flying the PLA (not PLAN) flag. Hmm.... Army ship?
