Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Lots of capacity to retrofit the amphibious assault ship as a small boat tender, at the sacrifice of the space to carry 450 Amphibious Assault troops.

Looking back on it after sleeping on it, it seems like the kind of boat that would most benefit from an internal well-dock would be the small, very fast type of patrol boat, and I can see that something like a missile boat would neither need nor substantially benefit from that, though it would benefit from a mothership.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
