    Navy will certainly become more important to China in the following decades. While China is already the hegemon in Eurasia, it lacks the means to project military power quickly and efficiently. That's where the carriers and fast combat support ships come in. Ideally China needs at least 10 Type 901 combat support ships before the end of the decade.

    The Type 901 is not the only support ship the Chinese have.

    Heavy frigate Type 052D #162 Nanning which was launched in February 2019 is commissioned tomorrow. The terrible delay caused by covid sucks but finally China's shipbuilding rate is back to normal.

    Type 903 is comparably smaller and unable to support fleets beyond South China Sea. Considering China is hegemon of the Old World, more Type 901 support ships are needed to support Chinese missions to the western coast of Africa.

    Not a bad carrier battle group.

    1 heavy STOBAR carrier with 26 fixed wings and 10 helos.
    1 Type 901 45.000 ton fast combat support ship
    1 Type-055 heavy missile destroyer with 112 vls and AESA radars.
    1 Type-052D missile destroyer with 64 vls and AESA radars.

    Somewhere outside the picture is a Type-054A missile frigate lurking around and 1-2 SSN should be close.

    Reminds me of this, but in a more modern way.

    China commissions 3 vessels at one time.
    First Type-075 LHD, a third Type-055 destroyer and a new Type-094 SSBN submarine. Shocked Shocked

    China seems to be working hard with its carriergroups these days. Again they sailed against Japanese waters.
    This time with the Liaoning, 1 type-055 destroyer, 2 type-052D destroyers, 1 Type-054A frigate and a Type-901 fast supply ship.

    Perhaps once the Type 003 series is out and about.
    By that time they should have more than eight Type 055s. Who knows, maybe even sixteen of them.

    China is only interested in its peripheral seas namely Yellow Sea, East China Sea, South China Sea.

    Except from the last 053H3 ships the Type 053 frigate is an outdated modell. Armed with SY-2 missiles (based on the P-15 Termit) its hardly relevant in modern naval warfare.
