China has started building a new generation of large 40,000 ton amphibious assault vessels. They are helicopter aircraft carriers. The amphibious vessel is far larger than similar ships formerly constructed for the PLA Navy. Construction of the Type 075 ships will take two more years. The first will be launched as early as 2019 and put into full service in 2020.
China is also increasing the size of its marine corps from about 20,000 to 100,000 personnel.
The size of the Chinese navy would also grow 15 per cent. This would be from 235,000 now to 260,000.
China’s army staffing will be reduced by 300,000.
