    Have the Chinese got the license to build more ZUBR ? 4 units seems very low

    That is one of the peculiar things about the PLAN in regards to the acquisition of the Zubr, one would have expect that given the unique capabilities offered by the platform and the myriad of interest China have in the surrounding sea, China did be having at least a fleet of these things. Enough to transport an entire brigade and their equipment. But in so far the numbers have not risen beyond 10 afaik.

    My exact quote is "beyond 10", which mean I did not ever at any point claim that the PLAN has 10 functioning ZUBRS at this point of time. What I can be sure of is that the PLAN has at least 4 in active service, 2 which they got from the Ukrainian shipyard, another 2 being domestically built.

    Not as much as a 075 LPD or any capital ship would cost.

    Are you comparing a LCAC with capital ship?

    He's comparing the mention of 10 Zubr LCACs with one capital ship.
