Introducing the PLA naval underwater demolition team

This PLAN’s sole underwater demolition team was commissioned in 1984.   Since its inception, the team has participated in 57 key projects such as the Three Gorges Damn dam and the Qinshan nuclear power plant.  

It's current key project is the construction of  Liaoning’s home port at Qingdao.  Judging by satellite photos, this huge  key project has the work cut out for them.   Also, given the huge size of the construction project, it is likely that the PLAN has more than one air carrier in mind for Qingdao.
