    It is true that development of type 726 LCAC faced technical problems and production had to be halted. However, the problems have been solved, that is why now that large numbers of these hovercrafts are being built in JNCX. The improved variant is designated type 726A and these are the ones we are seeing in JNCX's harbour basin area.

    If each of type 071 LPD is allocated with two 726A, they will need 16 units, and if four 726A are allocated than the need would be 32 units, not accounting for reserve units.

    11 units has been sighted in photos released depicting PLAN exercise/training. We can expect at least 20 more to appear in JNCX shipyard. And if type 075 will to be equipped with LCAC, then many more 726A are needed.

    I don't troll, look at the photo again, why is the space object tracking ship Yuan Wang 7 is still there? That ship has left JNCX sometimes ago.

    Does the water looks like it is now, Summer time?

    Hi Asif,

    Do you have an exact date for when that satellite image was taken? It is obviously very recent (it shows all the latest developments to the yard extension) but I ask because it also appears to show an earth coffer dam separating the old pump house from the river which is something I don't think we have seen before. It also looks like they are no longer letting water into the basin through the new pump basin either which suggests that excavation may be about to resume.
