I always wonder what is the purpose of such large coast guard vessels, and my theory is that they can be used to patrol overseas sea lanes, such as around Africa for example, and would be able to assist in large scale evacuation of Chinese nationals in troubled areas. Another kind of mission would be for search and rescue of passengers in a lost airliner or cruise ship in the deep ocean area.
I think ramming is a coast guard tactic.

also to "talk softly & carry a big stick".

Someone posted a link somewhere here to Andrew Erikson's ship illustrations of three classes of China's People Militia vessels with reinforced bows specifically meant for ramming. I thought that was amusing :)
