I have received a copy of the press release made by Defense Industry Undersecretariat, after posting my blog about the Turkish LPD project.
I have created the below table with the information on the press release to make a comparison between the Spanish Juan Carlos, Australian Canberra and Turkish LPD, all based on the same Navantia design.
|Range (n. miles)||9.000||9.000||7.000|
Please mind that the information about the Turkish LPD is estimations and may change during the course of the project.
The crew will be 190 sailors, 56 air crew, 50 medical staff, 200 command staff and up to 700 marines.
The LPD will be able to carry 13 MBT’s, 27 armored amphibious attack vessels, 6 armored personnel carriers and 33 truck in the garage bay.
The air component will consist of 4 at least 15 ton helicopters on the flight deck and 4 at least 15 ton helicopters or 3 UAV’s in the hangar.
