    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.

    January last year 4 x LCAC were handed over to PLAN

    In August last year we had 10 sitting in JNCX

    These were not new build these were commissioned units

    18 months later and 8 x LCAC have been sitting at JNCX collecting dust

    If this doesn’t prove a serious problem with the LCAC I don’t know what does

    Old photo from the days when the sky snows and the northern winds chill down the bone with Xue Long II and Yuan Wang 7 depicted in this photo. At least a quarter of year has passed since then. An out-dated data with photo evidence shows at least 11 LCACs are in service with PLAN.

    (yes, out-dated data is not a typo, we don't know the latest up-dated data yet).

    No that is a recent photo

    And this even more recent

    And I was wrong there was not 8 x LCAC sitting collecting dust but actually 9

    The water is caked with white coloured thin ice, except near the bridge where dark water exist because of hot discharged waste water from the manufacturing plants. Ice formed in cold winter and early spring.
