Why is this in the "supply vessels" thread?PLAN semi-submersible. Via LKJ86 at the PDF. You have seen pics of this ship before but often in the background of other PLAN warships. This ship is meant to transport entire ships. Why the PLAN has a dedicated semi-submersible is beyond me as it would be the only navy in the world to do so. Even the USN doesn't have semi-submersibles; you hand this heavy lifting job out to any of the commercial semi-submersibles. There is no lack in China for mega semi-submersibles, some of which are bigger and more capable than what the PLAN has.
