    Why do Australia need such ships to fight on neighboring islands.

      -And the Papuans ?! they are under the protectorate of Australia. That's because their Cook was eaten, but our Miklouhu-Maclay was not touched and will be captured!

          Not this way

          Автсралия это же "шакал" наглосаксов и США - это по сути их составная часть - она и входит официально в Юнайтед Кингдом и находится под королевой

          They are always part of the Western aggressors and bombed everyone together with the United States - Korea Vietnam Iraq Afghanistan - I do not remember where else

          Where the Americans and England send - these ships will sail there - to Iran or Syria, to China or the Russian Far East, if necessary

      Yes, they won’t land anywhere. Mattress covers and co. Nightmare the world with evil Russians and Eboley sell everything that can kill. Mol take it useful. Red already in the city. Pony. Mass hysteria created artificially by the USA. The more wars the richer the USA

      Yes. I wonder what and where they were going to drop.
      After all, Australia and the country and the continent, at the same time.
      Maybe they’ll bring something to New Zealand.
      Там весь "цвет" мировых лидеров строит себе в скалах убежище на случай (на всякий случай).
      Probably it will be their personal protection.

      Australia has its own view on who should own the surrounding islands. smile
      Plus, China is claiming influence in the area.

      I think they will not spend money in vain. Another question is when we will build something similar. It's a shame to look at our scrap metal in the Mediterranean !!!!

      In fact, the Australians swung at the UDC after problems with supporting their forces in East Timor.
      У Австралии по соседству туча островов, на каждый из которых есть по несколько "абсолютно законных претендентов". Да ещё и Китай с севера нависает.

    And where are the Australians going to land? to Syria or something? ... all the same, these vessels are more needed for offensive operations than for defense.
    Aussies are all keen to get into some sort of fight on another continent.

      The devil knows them. Here it is necessary to approach differently. The British fleet increased by another UDC. Grandma Lisa probably knows why he is needed.

        Британия держится в тени США, но США это лишь некий "охранник - громила" мира англосаксов, которым в действительности рулит британская корона. "Бабка Лиза" вовсе не символическая фигура, как её пытаются выставить, очень даже много чего старушка может. Если Австралия строит УДК, это надо Британии, и это делается не без ведома и одобрения англичан.

    Perhaps a regional power, such ships are superfluous to control their coast and nearby islands. Now the Australians will be asked to join some sort of coalition with the United States, and to attack - where the State Department will send. Americans have recently been fond of fighting in the name of their interests.

    Он и строился как небольшой авианосец , прежде всего для охраны районов морского судоходства ,пираты там кругом ,режимы не стабильные ,кроме Сингапура и Вьетнама . Да и дядя Сэм часто их приглашает по Индийскому океану до африканского побережья прогуляться .Кстати наряду с французскими "Мистралями" Россия рассматривала и испанский вариант, но что то видно не срослось.

    So, quietly and imperceptibly, the Spaniards built 2 (!) Landing ships for Australia. And no one screams like a fit that Australia (Spain) is a great sea power. And we have a minesweeper for 4 years mocking and enthusiasm about this full pants. Himself is not disgusting, huh? When will you become realists ...?

      You will not believe - with a springboard the ship was cheaper. laughing

      Австралийцы взяли готовый испанский проект, заточенный под "Харриеры". Когда же они заикнулись, что "харриеров" у них не будет и трамплин можно убрать, то им ответили, что можно сделать всё - но только за деньги Заказчика.

    Для чего государству-континенту, само-собой, отделенному от остального Мира водами мирового океана десантные корабли? Да для того же, для чего и новые ЭсМ ("Хобарт", "Брисбен" и "Сидней"), ВТС С-17 "Глоубмастер" и иже с ними тактические истребители F/A-18. Для чего?... в АТР (ЮВА и Океании) с огромным кол-вом островов и архипелагов? Если коротко, чтобы не ждать врага у самых ворот (считай, что Дома). Очевидно, это они ещё очень скромно, т.к. при кризисе предпологается поддержка амер-ского, британского, канадского и голландского флотов. "Интересны" вопросы подобного хар-ра за ВС нейтральных Финляндии и Швейцарии, например.

    "Аделаида" типа "Канберра", это другой проект кораблей, класс ДВКД, их испанский старший брат :

    New long-range boats and heaps of opportunities for a given range of tasks.
    If we now have such .... plowed used on the highway of the Syrian express. With great benefit.
    .... But we have built a huge memorial complex in Sverdlovsk .... ku and ..... yayu Eltsin, which SAM himself opened, and he also took eifosh with him and erect boxes for football 2018. Therefore, it’s not enough on ships stays on boats a little more.
    By the way, I myself have never even placed a wreath at the Kremlin wall of I.V. Stalin at the Kremlin wall.
    And they are afraid to even remember the murder of the marshal of the Soviet Union and the creator of the nuclear shield of the state, L.P. Beria.

      Какая польза от БДК или УДК на трассе "порт-порт"? Им же в Сирии не на необорудованный берег разгружаться надо.
      Thank God that the Ministry of Defense has finally been honored and has done what they have been talking about for 2 years: put on line normal civilian ships under the flag of the auxiliary fleet.

    Кораблики, в принципе неплохие и Австралии как стране острову совсем не помешают для создания ВМФ сбалансированного по силам и средствам. Правда есть одно но. При заказе этих кораблей в Испании Заказчик как то не подумал что испанские корабли были спроектированы под "Си Харриеры", коих у Австралии нет и не будет. А то что будет, т.е. Ф35, на эти корабли базироваться не смогут т.к. прочности взлетно посадочной палубы для них не хватает а трамплин мало того что оказался лишним так еще сьедает значительную часть площади этой палубы . Об этом сейчас в военных и политических кругах Австралии идут большие дебаты.
