China is planning to build world’s first 10,000-ton class marine surveillance ship under a contract worth over $46 million.

The contract awarded to China Ship-building Industry Corporation, includes the construction of another 4,000-ton surveillance ship. Tests for the ship's marine clutch have so far been successful.

If the rest of the massive vessel is fully completed, China will overtake the current record holder, Japan – who owns a 7,125 tonnes surveillance ship.
