    It is significantly more difficult and expensive. Forming, equipping, training and fielding something like a MEU is not an easy task. Remember, it takes many years for a vessel like a LHD to come to FOC.

    But wasn't the Type 382 radar already installed since some time?

    Sorry to say, I don't think that photo is the latest. What's missing in that photo is the TACAN above the Type 382.

    What's a TACAN? Short explanation.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tactical_air_navigation_system

    Here is an example of a TACAN. There are TACANs on top of the Type 382 installed on both the Liaoning and Shandong. However, TACANs are not installed on top of Type 382 used on Type 054A frigates.

    When the Type 075 was launched, it already had the Type 382 radar but there was no TACAN on top of it. For a while, that absence was sustained.

    Then the TACAN emerged, and should be seen on later photos. Here you conveniently can see it exactly right under this sentence.
