It's a stealthy, trimaran Fast Attack Craft. Several navies are working with the concept.

This first ship appears to be focused on the FAC mission, and appears to be designed for the installation of anti-ship missile launchers amidship (in the middle of the ship). But we can safely expect that the Chinese will soon design and build larger models that can carry UAVs and small boats for landing commandoes, as the U.S. may soon be doing. The Chinese will probably already have its version of the digital connectivity which lies at the heart of the LCS program. So here we have an area of military technical competition in which the Chinese are demonstrating creativity and a potential ability to match the U.S. just as it is embarking on a new direction in naval warship and combat tactics modernization.

Oh, sorry. I had pasted the incorrect link in my quote, but it is fixed now. It links to an article featuring some of the same photos in the first post in this thread, even the aft shot of the jets.
