The new transport landing ship was built at the Kaohsiung shipyard in the south, with a drainage of about 10,000 tons, a total length of about 150 meters, and was named "Yushan" after the highest mountain in Taiwan.
It is called a dock type that loads landing craft and amphibious vehicles in a hangar that can inject water, and helicopters can also arrive and depart on the deck.
In addition, the hull has stealth characteristics that are difficult to catch by radar, and is equipped with air defense missiles.
