Turkish Navy LHD TCG Anadolu L-400 Amphibious Assault Ship

Coming along nicely.  Additionally that new AAV they're working on will be a good match.  Since they're out of the F-35 program I guess they'll be stuck using attack helicopters and assault helicopters for their missions.

That might have dodged a bullet with that the more I think about it.  Not another ramble about the F-35 but more about this type of ship.

They were designed as helicopter carriers with a surface attack capability. Only later did they pick up the fast mover role.  In hindsight I think doing so was a mistake.  The better option in my mind is a Cavour type solution of a real deal light carrier, not a hybrid.
