However, a number of very early and accurate maps exist which were made by Piri Reis based on material including the maps by Columbus and used by the Turkish navy.
As this striking animation shows, the ships of Zheng He would have dwarfed European vessels of the time.

 Zheng He (1371-1433), the Chinese Muslim Admiral - China Defence Today Forum
Zheng he never had such giant ships, there is not any prove for it, noone has seen them in 15th century and there is only one drawing of them in wich they are much smaller.
If Zheng He went around in his fleet and conquored or plundered eveything he saw (his fleet certainly had more than the capacity to do so) thus yielding a positive cashflow, I doubt any minister in the Ming court would complain.
In the early days of the Ming Dynasty, that is, early in the 15th century, Zheng He was ordered by the then emperor to lead a vast fleet to sail for a distant voyage, aimed to establish relations with foreign countries and expand trade contacts.

Given the context under which I stated my claims, which is being that Zheng He's fleet did not provide any strategic importance, for the most part (how could they, they sailed to a part of the world where the Ming dynasty had very little interest in), that is an accurate assessment.
I think the main problem with Zheng He is that it is very questionable as to whether he actually "achieved" as much as the other great explorers.
Zheng He didn't pioneer anything that traders already knew; his journey was more to trumpet the power of the Ming on an established route.
