TCG Anadolu or TCG Anadolu L-400is the first ship of Turkey to be classified as an amphibious assault ship (LHD) in terms of its main configuration. It can also be used in amphibious operations in terms of its main formation. Work started in 2014 for the construction of the ship, which will become the flagship of the Turkish Naval Forces when its construction is completed. In the design of the ship, the design of the Spanish Navy ship Juan Carlos I (L61) was taken as an example. TCG Anadolu, built in line with the needs of the Turkish navy, will be able to hold 8 fully equipped helicopters. 1 battalion will be able to dispatch full-fledged soldiers to the desired region. It is thought that the ship, which is suitable for intercontinental missions, will actively continue its duties in the Black Sea, Aegean and Mediterranean Seas.

About TCG Anadolu

TCG Anadolu will facilitate the take-off of warplanes with its 12-degree inclination, thus providing convenience in the use of aircraft other than helicopters.

The ship, which will be used as a multi-purpose amphibious assault ship, has the capacity to carry 1400 people. 1 amphibious battalion will be able to land in the desired region without the need for communication, combat and support vehicles. TCG Anadolu ship, which can accommodate 700 sea landing craft, apart from its 8-person amphibious force, will have a military hospital with a capacity of at least 30 beds, including an operating room, dental treatment units, intensive care and infection rooms.
