    Can't wait to see it make a sea landing for the first time.

    If China kits this out with serious ASW gear this could be a potent platform. The ability to refuel at sea is invaluable if you can operate in high sea state.

    Not for high sea state i think, just for rescue and fire fighting, maybe also suitable transportation and patrol between "naturally grown" islands in SCS...
