This class was known as the MM14, Mitsubishi's 'Liberty replacement'design. I served in both "Isabel Erica" and "Nils Amelon" which became "Chang Ping" and "Hong Gu Cheng" respectively.

Hallo Arne,
I agree to Asnyk cocnernign the shpae of the ship. I mena that the first letter is an Z. So maybe the name starts with Zhong. Unofrtunatley many of Chines ships start with taht name.
