    As always, we'll see soon enough. But if it's only begun construction there probably won't be much to show.

    well considering China has already 2 Type 071s LPDs and 2 Under construction it is only a matter of time before a LHD is seen, 25,000 ton is a big LHD!

    hope to see some pics soon#!

    For LHD is not that big, its pretty normal with other LHD in service or construction.
    French Mistral LHD: 21 000t
    Australian Canberra LHD: 27 000t
    US Wasp LHD: 40 000t

    yes true but at IMDEX Naval Technology Show in Singapore in 2007 Chinese sources claimed that Type 081 LHD would be 21,000 ton carry 450 troops and 16 helos, but that was 4 years ago, if this report is true it means that it will larger than expected

    if it size of Canberra it might even take as much as 24 helos

    Yeah, Aussies intent to use its Canberra as mini carrier. 25000 ton is on the uppidy side.

    WASP for all intents and purposes is a med sized carrier.

    A LHD of any practicality can't be any smaller and very easy to spot, so when we see a through-deck ship with an island structure on the starboard side, we'd know.
    Now let's take a break...

    Wow didnt realise Canberra was such a nice looking LHD, looks like a mini-carrier to me and plenty of storage and handling capacity, looks like Aussies are splashing out!
