This isn’t the 7,000 ton tug that was one of the 3 built in the last few years ?

now the Type 901 tanker will allow PLAN to do deep long range Pacific Ocean operations
Yes its the same tugs we have seen in the Huangpu shipyard where they make the Surtass catamarans, Type 054A and Type 056A.

You can do deep long-range Pacific Ocean operations with (smaller and slower) Type-903 replenishment ships.

You only need the extra speed of the Type-901 (which has 4 gas turbines) and extra payload, if you need to keep up with an aircraft carrier.
