I find Chinese people generally like group weddings a very unique cultural thing. Probably because they like things with lots of people, there is a Chinese word for it but I can't remember ping Ying.PLAN really love group wedding
Romance on the sea: Photos capture the sweet moment 21 Chinese navy soldiers marry their brides at a group wedding ceremony held on Jinggangshan, the second largest battleship operated by the PLA Navy, at a southern Chinese port on Nov 8, 2018.
All we have is info of a ship with a similar hull structure to that of type 071... Whether it entails enough new design elements to be called a follow on class is surely a hard thing to ascertain until the hull is launched...Is unit #7 a Type 071 or the first from the follow on class (071A or 071B)?
It'd be nice if it turned out to be a 075.All we have is info of a ship with a similar hull structure to that of type 071... Whether it entails enough new design elements to be called a follow on class is surely a hard thing to ascertain until the hull is launched...
The Ship-to-shore portion of an amphibious assault? For the helos, we probably looking at a Navalised Z-20 or even a replacemnt perhaps. Hop onto the Z-20 thread for more info The LCACs are something I didnt really look at... but the latest/best they have is the Type 726? If they plan to build more Type 071s, it would make sense to increase the amount of LCACs they have, yes?I think I read somewhere that the plan was to build 8x Type 071 LPDs.
Especially considering that the USA just increased the size of its San Antonio-class LPD order it makes some sense.
I am still concerned with the situation with regards to the LCACs and the helicopters for these ships though.
