The 315-metre long, 75-metre wide vessel has a cruising speed of 31 knots and has a displacement of 70,000 tonnes. The launch of the ship comes at a time of high tension in the Southeastern region of Asia, as North Korea has increased its aggressive rhetoric and territorial disputes in the South China Sea still continue.
