Heading out again?

Only a few weeks after PLAN's annual cruise off Okinawa, a large task force from the East Sea Fleet is spotted traveling out to sea.    The single file is leaded by DDG 170 and flanked by a number of Type 022 Houbei class FACs. Not sure why they are bringing everything including the kitchen this time, but I am sure the PLA Daily will provide us with a reasonable explanation in no time.

Just so everyone know, Zshu isn't actually Chinese. He is probably some white kid. We Chinese don't act like that and the West enjoy villianize China. But yep, just doing my part.

Most likely related to base repair or other construction work, requiring access to piers and other facilities normally associated with ship when in-port.

In effect, they are transferring to whole Base Force and attached squadron(s) to another location, on a temporary basis.
