Previously, the PLAN troops have reaped many results in promoting the development of multi-platform landing equipment. New types of equipment including dock landing ship and air cushion landing craft have been commissioned to the PLAN in succession, and the research on large landing ship also harvested success. The rapid development of various landing equipment has laid a sound foundation for systematic construction.

According to a briefing, the Armaments Department of the PLAN will continue to tackle key problems to facilitate the establishment of multi-platform landing equipment systems and eliminate the loopholes. As an example of the efforts, a new type of air cushion landing crafts once serving in the Chinese naval escort taskforces will be commissioned to the PLAN in a row. Such landing crafts adopt home-made high-power gas turbines and hover-fans for stable driving force, showing sound adaptability to various battlefields.

In addition, the navy will also focus on enhancing the overall information level of landing equipment systems so as to further elevate the information exchange and precise-strike capabilities of landing equipment.
