describes

type 071 Amphibious Transport Dock

NATO code: Yuzhao-class, Chinese: Yuzhao-class, or Kunlun Mountain class after the lead ship Kunlun Mountain), is a large multi-purpose amphibious dock landing ship under the Chinese People's Liberation Army Navy. The ship can be used as the mother ship of landing craft to transport soldiers, infantry fighting vehicles, main battle tanks, etc. to carry out landing operations, and can also carry amphibious vehicles, with large helicopter take-off and landing decks and operation facilities.
Judging from the huge cost and construction period required for the 071 landing ship and the air-cushion landing craft, it will still take a long time for the Chinese Navy to establish a modern ocean-going amphibious combat capability. The Type 071, which can continue to operate at sea, has a large load, and can operate a variety of sea/air vehicles, including helicopters and air-cushion landing craft, greatly strengthens the Chinese Navy's amphibious combat capabilities, allowing it to carry out large-scale projection of troops and equipment from the coast to locations deep inland. The most important significance of the emergence of 071 is that the Chinese Navy has an additional weapon to show and project its power in the face of issues such as economic interests and island ownership in the surrounding waters, adding influence in the disputed South China Sea and the East China Sea, and even posing a potential threat to Japan's southern islands, so the appearance of this type of ship has aroused great concern from the Japanese Defense Agency. Of course, 071 can also be used as an effective transportation/projection platform for the PLA to participate in international joint overseas peacekeeping and humanitarian rescue operations in the future, and even improve the PLA's amphibious operation capability in possible high-intensity regular military operations.
