China Coast Guard's Type 072-class landing ship.
Monday, May 25, 2015
PLAN commission of the day: LST 981 Dabieshan
It is interesting to note that the PLAN is assigning all three of her 071 LPDs to the 6th Landing Ship Flotilla, South Sea Fleet, while the "Taiwan facing" 5th Landing Ship Flotilla soldiering on with smaller LSTs. I suppose Taiwan is closer to the Chinese mainland then some of those South China Sea islands.
