    Haven't seen any posts on this subforum with regards to the Chinese Navy's new class of General Supply Vessels or in US Navy terminology :Fleet Replenishmeent Oiler".

    At 48 000 tons, this class will be an important part of any large Chinese Navy task groups or Carrier Battle groups.

    Several photos of the lead vessel Hulun, docked at the Zhanjiang Naval port with two Type 071 LPD's. She's likely to be attached to the 3rd Logistics Flotilla:

    When fully loaded, The Type 091 will weigh in at almost the same weight as both the LPD's pictured behind her but still manage the same 25kn speed.

    The first of the Type 901 class has recently received her pennant number. No 985:

    This pic nicely illustrates her immense size of this 40 000 tons replenishment monster.
