It's not bad; its potency comes from what it can carry, namely 250 troops and 10 MBTs (so I'm told). That's a very useful load from the PLA's perspective. There is no logic to the belief that it is in any real way inferior to the US equivilent. LSTs do not fight other LSTs, whose are better isn't really an issue.

Is that the best they can do? It's slightly more intimidating than a yacht with BB gun. If you bought military hardware at yard sales, you'd probably get stuff like this.
