LST AMPHIBIOUS SHIP
ABOUT THE PROJECT

The main mission of the Landing Ship Tank (LST) is amphibious operations, vehicles, and equipment with unit transport and fire support. In addition to contributing to operations and logistics missions with advanced communications, electronic and command control facilities, the vessels are equipped with facilities and capabilities to carry out natural disaster relief missions when necessary.

The LST amphibious ships, built as a mono hull, displacement type with all-steel construction, have full personnel protection against nuclear, biological and chemical attacks, as well as a helicopter platform to allow the landing and take-off of a 15-ton general purpose helicopter.

While the construction of the first ship, the TCG-BAYRAKTAR, was realized with 70.68% domestic industry participation, the share of SME’s in domestic industry participation was approximately 48%.

The second vessel in the program, the” TCG SANCAKTAR”, is planned to be delivered to the Turkish Naval Forces in 2017 upon the completion of sea acceptance tests.
