    The value of arsenal ships have been debated many times on this and other forums. There is some preliminary research by PLAN designers on a semi-submersible arsenal ship that has appeared on the internet recently, but we will have to see where this goes.

    It depends on how many ships and aircraft the opposition has and how theirs and yours are distributed over the World.

    Are you aware of what the arsenal ship concept is?



    That depends on the capability of the foe one is facing.

    Against a more capable foe, having multiple ships with the same, redundant sensors -- with the knowledge that in a high intensity conflict you will likely lose a number of those ships and thus those sensors -- is wise.

    To be honest. I feel weird with how PLAN 's ship class name. Why 053 classes preceded the 051 and 052 ones? I'm sure that it's a hull classification name. There were old 050, 051, and 052 that preceded the 053 Jianghu class Frigate? IF so, then there is a probability that they will reuse the 053 hull again in the future.

    It's worse than the DSLR model numbers! At some point you worry they run out of numbers then change to 3 digits?

    Not before today. This is a great concept for (the war situation around) Taiwan. PLAN should build at least one ship.

    I recalled the debate, perhaps a half of a dozen of pages, which began with

    First 051 in 1971, preceded by 1950s Type 07/6607.
    First 053 in 1975, preceded by 1960s Type 065.

    Lots of militaries do that. Look at US; B-17, B-52 before the B-1, B-2. M-60 before M-1. etc, etc. As long as the designation is unique, it really doesn't matter.
