Written to reflect recent achievements of the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) in celebration of the 71st anniversary of the establishment of the naval service, the report refers to "new weapons" entering service including the Type 055 destroyer, the first domestically built aircraft carrier, and new anti-submarine patrol aircraft (the KQ-200), as well as the new submarine.

One of the PLAN’s Type 094 SSBNs during a fleet review in April 2019. Global Times reported on 22 April that the service recently commissioned a “new strategic nuclear-powered submarine”. No details were provided by the paper but it is possible that it is referring to a further improved Type 094. Source: TASS
