Yulian-class Landing Craft Utility
The Yulian class Landing Craft Utility was developed in 1967 to fulfill the need for a medium size amphibious utility ship. In design the Yulian class resembles an enlarged version of the Type 27 landing craft. The first 27 were originally built by the Guanghzhou Shipyard between 1972 and 1978. Four modified ships, Type 79-II's, were built by the Xiamen Shipyard between 1979 and 1983.
These ships have mainly seen service in the South China Sea and are used to transport personnel and materiel around the coastal region.
