Photo of the day: China Navy's trimaran "North Rescue 143"

This little guy was first spotted on September 15 near Guangxi, it is now moved  to Guangzhou for final fit-out before joining the North Sea Fleet.

Still not sure why they feel the need to arm a S&R boat.

Coast Guard Cutters are also armed.

Think they will find vertical accelerations at the deck edge are going to be too high to comfortably launch boat much of the time. They would be better off with stern launch ramp.
