One new Type 903 replenishment ship under construction in Guangzhou

When it is commissioned, the PLAN will command nine Type 903 replenishment ships (20,000 tons each). Furthermore, they can count on:
-- One Type091 (48,000 tons) with another Type091 under construction.
-- Six Type094 (15,000 tons)
-- One Type908 (37,000 tons)
-- Two Type905 (21,750 tons)

As the PLAN increases frequency and duration of her deployments, it is natural to build a more robust supporting infrastructure to accommodate the new demand.
