1st imported Zubr awarded the China Navy pennant number of 3325

According to China Navy's nomenclature,  3xxx range pennants are reserved for minor amphibious assets.  This is an indication that the China Navy has no plan to operate those Zubrs independently like their traditional LST/LPD counter-parts even if a Zubr can deliver as much as a Type 072 class landing ship and operating at a faster speed.
