LHD MULTI-PURPOSE AMPHIBIOUS ASSAULT SHIP
ABOUT THE PROJECT

The Multipurpose Amphibious Assault Ship (LHD) will be utilized in the Aegean, Black Sea and the Mediterranean operational areas, and if necessary, the Indian Ocean (north of the Arabian Peninsula and west of India) and the Atlantic Ocean (west of Europe and northwest of Africa).

The Multipurpose Amphibious Assault Ship, the TCG ANADOLU, can transport one amphibious battalion as well as carrying the necessary combat and support vehicles to the crisis regions without the support of the main base, taking part in landing operations with the landing vehicles it carries in its well-deck and providing the opportunity for the heaviest NATO helicopters in its inventory together with the tilt-rotor Osprey aircrafts to take part in day and night operations with its flight deck.

Additionally, the TCG ANADOLU on which tactical aircraft capable of Short Take Off and Vertical Landing (STOVL) like F-35B can deploy will be able to transform the regional force projection (transfer) capability of the Republic of Turkey into a medium-scale global force projection capability. The TCG ANADOLU will have an infirmary/hospital including an operating room, x-ray equipment, dental treatment units, intensive care and infection rooms with a capacity of at least 30beds and will be able to serve as a hospital vessel in humanitarian operations.

The Multi-Purpose Amphibious Assault Ship is planned to be built with a total/full displacement of 27,436 tons, 231 meters in length and will be the largest naval platform in the inventory of our Armed Forces.
