The world biggest Coast guard ship, China's 12,000-ton CCG 5901



Chinese coast guard ship 5901, dubbed “The Monster” for its size.

The 12,000-ton CCG 5901 is double the size of a U.S. Navy Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser and is also bigger than an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer.

The coast guard ship, armed with heavy machine guns, also has a helicopter platform and a hangar large enough to accommodate larger rotary wing aircraft.

China's coast guards have two over 12,000-ton ships, besides ,70 Chinese coast guard ships are over 3,000 tons, 145 ships are over 1,000 tons.

The CCG 3901 is the sister ship of the CCG 2901 cutter, which has been operating in the East China Sea since 2015. Built at Shanghai’s Jiangnan Shipyard, the CCG 3901 has been dubbed “the monster” by analysts given its large displacement tonnage of around 12,000 tons. As explained elsewhere:

[T]he China Coast Guard ship outsizes a the U.S. Navy’s Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser by about 50 percent, and is also bigger than an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer (e.g., the USS Lassen), which displaces around 9,700 tons. In addition, it also outclasses Japan’s 6,500-ton Shikishima-class coast guard cutters.
