The Haijiu 101-class serves the modern People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) in the rescue and salvage role. The class is known in the NATO nomenclature as the "Haijiu (Hai Jiu) 101-class". Currently (2022), there are at least six ships making up the class: Bei-Jui 739, Bei-Jui 742, Bei-Jiu 743, Nan-Jiu 171, Nan-Jiu 195, and Nan-Jiu 198. The group is spread about the North Sea and South Sea fleets in the rescue and salvage role, photographed as recently as June 2022 undertaking rescue training exercises.

The ships are thought to be PLAN-modified variants of existing civilian-market types.

The vessels appear to sport all-modern systems and sub-systems, the forecastle dominated by a single-helo landing deck. The bridge superstructure is concentrated at midships and noted by its horizontal section of windows as well as the only mast works apparent in the profile. A pair of heavy-duty powered cranes are positioned aft of the superstructure, at both port and starboard sides, and a general work area takes over the stern section of the hull. The hull line is of stepped design, leading down from the raised bow to its lowest point at the stern.

The vessel carries various rescue-centric solutions including life rafts, fast boats, various flotation devices, dive chambers and the like. The helipad can launch and retrieve rotary-wing elements to further the cause, particularly if these units are equipped with Search and Rescue (SAR) equipment. In the event of an at-sea disaster or plane crash, these would serve the ships well in the ensuing recovery effort.

Dimensionally, the hull measures 360.10 feet in length while drive power is from marine diesel units.

Beyond the six noted hulls, it is believed that construction of additional ships is ongoing as of this writing (2022).
