Type 718-Class Cutter



The Type 718-class cutter, also known as the Zhaojun-class cutter, is a patrol ship in service with the China Coast Guard Bureau (CCGB). With a 76mm deck gun, range of 6,500 nautical miles (nm), and speed of twenty-five knots, the 718 is more than capable of conducting blue-water patrol missions in contested areas. Furthermore, the 718 boasts a versatile boat launch facility towards the rear of the vessel, meaning the cutter can extend its blue-water capabilities into brown-water areas of operation.
