The Canberra-class Amphibious Assault Ship gives the Australian Defence Force one of the most capable and sophisticated air-land-sea deployment systems in the world.
Measuring 230m long with 15 deck levels, these 27,000 tonne ships, also known as Landing Helicopter Docks (LHDs), are Australia’s largest warships. They can land a force of over 1000 personnel by helicopter and watercraft, along with all their weaponry, ammunition, vehicles and stores.
