    The San antonio class has a much larger vehicle bay, which is also structured in a three floor pattern (only 2 for the type 071).

    There is absolutely no doubt that the Type 071 LPD is a very capable platform

    Multiple compartments with penalty of equipment storage and carrying capacity

    The doubt is on the LCAC which is fundamental to LPD assault capability even more for over the horizon

    Actually there is no doubt, LCAC has been a failure and hinders the amphibious capability of the PLAN

    Your image isn't very realistic as there is actually a lift between the two floors, and it's unknown if the second floor can actually hold tanks.

    But this discussion shouldn't be here. type 071 has its own page.

    These were not new build these were commissioned units
