1.5 Billion dollar - Landing Helicopter Docs – “LHD”LO2 - Amphibious Assault Ship.
At 27,000- tonne the LHD is the largest ship ever built for the Australian Navy.
She spent the weekend in Jervis Bay like so many other ships from the past, seeking safe anchorage out of the 5+ meter seas that were rolling outside the bay.
Its an unusual looking ship and has been christened HMAS Canberra, capable of transporting 1000 troops and 150 vehicles, including the new M1A1 tank.
It was built in Spain and transported to Australia on a barge.
She is the first of two being built for the RAN.
