    Sure, I'm just pointing out that he wasn't comparing a lone Zubr with a lone capital ship.

    Nope, I am referring to a fleet of 10 large sized LCAC, which Blitzs has to helpfully pointed out .
    And I fail to see how you would think of it that way, money and funding does not distinguish between platforms or services. What matters in the end is how many dollar (or in this case, yuan) bills are required to keep something running. In this case a fleet of 10 Zubrs would not be anywhere more expensive to build and to operate in comparison to a full sized amphibious assault vessel. And seeing that China is willing to invest in more costly platforms like aircraft carriers and nuclear subs, money would be the last realistic barrier to the Zubr's production.
