Type 744 / Type 744A Yannan - buoy tender / Large Navigation Vessel
In the early 1980s, maritime navigational responsibility was transferred from PLAN to Ministry of Transport of the People's Republic of China (MOT). The Type 985 buoy tender was the first purpose built buoy tender in the Chinese inventory, and the Type 744 is derived from this early design.
Type 744 No Dongbiao 263 retired from Chinese Navy on 01 August 2015 and transferred to civilian service. From then on, it left the naval battle sequence and handed it over to the local waterway department. In the 35-year history, the 263 ship to the East has brought too many stories, leaving too much emotion and too many imprints [this is a formulaic incantation that is invoked whenever a ship is retired]. The ship was shipped in 1980, with a standard displacement of 1,750 tons and a full load of more than 2,000 tons.
The main tasks of the ship are navigation mark layout, navigation channel measurement, scientific experiments, etc. It has participated in large-scale military exercises and military activities organized by the navy and fleet, and has repeatedly obtained grassroots construction units and grassroots military training units. According to statistics, the ship has won 3 times of collective second-class work; 5 times of third-class work; more than 100 times of individual third-class work. The achievement of these merits is rare in similar ships in peacetime.
She was like a soldier who has expired. Glorious demobilization, returning to the place to continue to dedicate new jobs. The navigation ship is like a moving lighthouse at sea, illuminating the warship to the deep blue voyage. With the entry of a new generation of navigational vessels, the seaway will be safer and more open.
After the ship is in the column, it will be responsible for the task of evacuating, inspecting and maintaining the special navigation mark, and opening up and marking the emergency battlefield channel. It is the "opening pioneer" of the sea where the warship is galloping deep blue. The navigation ship is the ship that is mainly responsible for the navigation, inspection, repair and maintenance of the navigation mark, and has good maneuverability and seaworthiness. But don't look at the name of the ship, the navigation mark is a good show, but other tasks have been completed and praised.
Observed from the shape, this type of navigation ship is divided into two models: Navy 4: South Standard 463, East Standard 263, North Standard 982/983. The maritime fleet is 6 ships: sea standard 11, sea standard 12, sea standard 21, sea standard 24, sea standard 25, sea standard 31
