According to PLAdaily, PLA Marine and its brotherly landing ships and helicopters units are developing new amphibious warfare tactics, which suggests they are having fun with the New LPD.

Looking at some of the recent photos, it makes sense for the 7th PLAN Independent Helicopter Regiment to be used in this role as it is located in Sanya Hainan and has a long history of ferrying Marines in many missions. It is also getting new birds too (note Z-8 number 9507)

Here is the link to the PLA daily article
