The Type 025 class torpedo boat is also known as Huchuan class, and it was once the backbone of the People's Liberation Army Navy in its confrontations with their much larger opponents in the Republic of China Navy. Although no longer serving as the frontline workhorse, this class is still quite active today. This unsophisticated class has a surprising longevity in the active service thanks to the particular philosophy within the People's Liberation Army Navy from which this class has benefited.
