Model of PLA’s new amphibious assault ship shown on internet

The model showed an amphibious assault ship capable of operating between six and 10 helicopters with a weight of 15 tons from its deck. The ship has two HHQ-10 air defense missile launchers and three 16-cell HHQ-16 medium-range air defense missile launchers. A Type 1130 close-in weapons system can also be seen from the model.

With an attacking range of between 10 and 12 kilometers, the HHQ-10 alone is strong enough to defend the vessel from aerial attacks, though the need for so many HHQ-16 launchers remains unknown.
