Type 081 general stores issue ship, also known as Hongqi (红旗, meaning Red Flag in Chinese) is a class of Chinese general stores issue ship that is in service with People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) since early 1970s. In addition to carrying cargos, Type 081 is also designed to carry some passengers as well. This class is derived from its unarmed sister ships in civilian service, which is a purely cargo version, not being able to carry passengers. Specification:[1]
