    Well, unlike the carriers jets, the Chinese have plenty of rotorcraft models to choose from? So, it's only a matter of producing them.

    Wrong on both accounts

    24 jets is not enough

    And Chinese currently pulls all rotary wing from other naval units

    There is no dedicated naval aviation brigade

    I wonder, how important for Chinese Navy are LHDs like Type 075? They don't need them for Senkoku, nor for Taiwan. For South China Sea, I think also not too much. Type 071 should be enough?

    LHD has many function ASW is one of the function, disaster relief is another. Providing air transport for special operation and as a base for attack helicopter
    It could be used for Taiwan contingencies if PLA want to land on the east coast of Taiwan where there are not much landing beach. so they have to bring troop over the mountain.

    Act as troop transporter and freighter for war material. China sealift is still inadequate for Taiwan invasion Need at least 6 or 9 of these babies

    Yeah even for SCS in providing lifeline and logistic support

    To rescue and evacuate Chinese personnel in far away Africa in case of emergency. If one of these is based in Djibouti.

    If japan can have 6 of these LHD why should China not having at least 6 or even 9?

    Not saying that they are not very useful nor that China don't needs them. But, do they need them now? After all, Taiwain is easily within reach of helicopters from the mainland- cca. 150 km. You don't need LHDs to enter Taiwan Strait to launch them, and it would be very foolish to try that, because such LHD wouldn't live for long. To attack Vietnamese bases in SCS, you also don't need LHDs. Vietnamese bases are numerous, but are also small, a corvette for gunnery support and LST for invasion force and that's enough.
    And to imitate USN in world policing, China first needs to clear it's own backyard, like Taiwan and SCS.

    Back and forth 150 km that take too long and without support of attack helicopter those transport helicopter is as good as dead. How are you going to ferry troop and reinforce troop with 150 km distance ? . Now how are you going to rearm attack helicopter with 150 km distance ?

    Those LHD will be part of invasion force with anti air destroyer and they will not attempt landing unless they clear the sky of Taiwan fighter jet

    I never said 24 was enough, if you actually bothered to read my post. I merely said that unlike the single carrier-ready model, J-15, there's plenty of helicopter models to choose from that they could produce for the 075.

    Again- any LHD or similar high value target that enters taiwan Strait is as good as dead. Because of Taiwanese land missile batteries. All other invasion transports, like LSTs or LCACs will be expendable and have a high attrition rates. The same goes for helicopters, utility and combat. It will not be easy. And the most important, nobody will be so foolish to send a high-value unit in Taiwan Strait.
