RFA Largs Bay (L3006)

RFA Largs Bay (L3006) is Bay Class Large Amphibious Landing Ships. The Bay Class are designed to operate over the horizon using helicopters and landing craft through a floodable stern dock to get men and equipment ashore. The ALSLs are to transport troops, stores, equipment and vehicles world-wide and deploy them into battle. The ships are capable of offloading at sea, 'over the horizon'. They operate with other ships of the amphibious task group, but are manned and operated by the Royal Fleet Auxiliary. The ALSLs may operate autonomously as supply ships. (Photo: Australia DoD)
