The Fuzhou class oil tanker is a class of Chinese tanker that is in service with People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN). 20 ships of this class were built by Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding, and entered service with PLAN between 1964 – 1970 in two versions, the oiler version and the water tanker version. The water tanker version lacks the raised cargo expansion tank top amidships, and both can carry 600 tons of cargo. After being transferred to reserve, these ships are currently being phased out.
