They call it a patrol boat.

Is that an arm of the Coast Guard? What?

Looks pretty cool anyway.











Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?

hi Edisone i think this could be it:
China’s Project 022 Fast Attack Craft

The Chinese Navy's Project 022 class is, despite its innovative hull design, a classic missile-armed fast attack craft. It is designed for the sole purpose of delivering eight anti-ship missiles to a specified naval target and has virtually no capability outside that area. Its design makes it unsuitable for patrol duties, while its short operational radius limits its applicability to maritime policing work.
In military roles, it is virtually defenseless against air attack and would have to rely on speed and agility to survive in a hostile environment. Craft in this general category were once in great vogue, but experience has shown that they are not an effective military unit outside very limited and specific areas. However, the Chinese Navy happens to have one of those limited and specific areas as a primary operational requirement. Thus, in its specific geostrategic situation, the Project 022 is a viable and effective craft.
The Chinese Navy has gone to significant


lengths to reduce the investment in any single Project 022 class FAC-M to a minimum. This does not just apply to equipment standards, austere though they are, but to manpower. The Project 022 has a crew of 12 to 14 sailors, less than half that of similar craft. At a unit cost of an estimated $50 million each, the Chinese could afford both the financial and manpower commitment needed to operate a very large fleet of these craft. Construction is expected to exceed 100 hulls and may well go beyond that point.

jpg and via china.com. i don't think cd conforms with china.com contents which is the reason you can't see it.

the craft is not that heavily armed; just a single small caliber deck gun; but, pretty sleek and cool design much in the way the 022 fac is; they dub it patrol boat; i'm starting to get the picture it may a new thingy china will be deploying in its anti-piracy/anti-smuggling/mekong river agendas, etc....

o'h what he heck! here's the link again
