    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

          Australia is the "jackal" of the Naglo-Saxons and the United States is, in fact, their integral part - it is officially included in the United Kingdom and is under the Queen

          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. 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.
      There, all the "color" of world leaders builds a shelter in the rocks for themselves in case (just in case).
      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.

      In fact, the Australians swung at the UDC after problems with supporting their forces in East Timor.
      Australia has a cloud of islands in its neighborhood, each of which has several "completely legitimate claimants." Moreover, China is hanging from the north.

    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.

        Britain is kept in the shadow of the United States, but the United States is just a kind of "guard-thug" of the Anglo-Saxon world, which is actually ruled by the British crown. "Granny Liza" is not at all a symbolic figure, as they are trying to expose her, a lot of things the old woman can do. If Australia builds a UDC, Britain needs it, and this is not done without the knowledge and approval of the British.

    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.

    It was built as a small aircraft carrier, primarily to protect maritime shipping areas, pirates are all around there, the regimes are not stable, except for Singapore and Vietnam. Yes, and Uncle Sam often invites them to walk along the Indian Ocean to the African coast. By the way, along with the French Mistrals, Russia also considered the Spanish version, but something did not seem to grow together.

    Australians are serious and courageous sailors, remember the cruiser "Sydney" in World War II. Australia is part of the British Commonwealth and, among other things, the British Queen has supreme power. So they will find where to drop. And the project ship "Prince of Austria" is a light aircraft carrier in Spain

    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

      The Australians took a ready-made Spanish project tailored for the Harriers. When they hinted that they would not have "harriers" and the springboard could be removed, they were told that everything could be done - but only for the Customer's money.

    Why should a continent-state, by itself, separated from the rest of the World by the waters of the world's oceans, need landing ships? Yes, for the same purpose, for which the new ESM ("Hobart", "Brisbane" and "Sydney"), MTC C-17 "Globemaster" and others like them tactical fighters F / A-18. For what? ... in the Asia-Pacific region (SEA and Oceania) with a huge number of islands and archipelagos? In short, so as not to wait for the enemy at the very gate (consider that Home). Obviously, they are still very modest, tk. in a crisis, the support of the American, British, Canadian and Dutch fleets is expected. Questions of a similar nature for the Armed Forces of neutral Finland and Switzerland, for example, are "interesting".

    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.

      What is the use of a BDK or UDC on the port-to-port route? They do not need to unload on an unequipped coast in Syria.
      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.

    The ships, in principle, are not bad and Australia as a country, the island will not interfere at all for the creation of a Navy balanced in strength and means. True, there is one thing. When ordering these ships in Spain, the Customer somehow did not think that the Spanish ships were designed for Sea Harriers, which Australia does not and will not have. And what will be, i.e. F35, these ships will not be able to be based. the strength of the landing deck is not enough for them, and the springboard, not only has turned out to be superfluous, it still eats up a significant part of the area of ​​this deck. There is a lot of debate about this in the military and political circles of Australia.
