The Type 072A-class landing ship (NATO designation Yuting-III-class) is the latest member of Type 072 series landing ship. Derived from Type 072III-class landing ship, the most obvious visual difference between Type 072A and all earlier models of Type 072 series is that the step of the stepped superstructure on all earlier models has been eliminated. Some internet sources have claimed that this class is called Type 072IV or Type 075, but such claims have yet to be verified by official governmental sources. A total of 9 ships have been identified, and most of them are deployed at 6th Detachment of PLAN South Sea Fleet at Zhanjiang.
