Bulieijian class minelayer
This relatively large minelayer may be employed as a minesweeper support ship in addition to minelaying duties. Only one hull (Wolei), reportedly based on a Japanese design, was constructed and in service.
This minesweeper was developed in 1981 by the No. 708 Institute. Complete in January 1988, the minesweeper was capable of the re-supply and re-loading of mines in. It was equipped with a folding crane, a multi-directional mine-transporting system, and navigation-command system better coordinated mine-laying.
