About TCG Anadolu

With its 12-degree slope, TCG Anadolu will facilitate the takeoff of warplanes and thus will facilitate the use of aircraft other than helicopters. It is also planned to order the Lockheed Martin F-35B model, which can make short take-off and vertical landing in the future, to serve on the TCG Anatolian ship. The ship, which will be used for the purpose of multipurpose amphibious assault ship, is capable of carrying 1400 people. 1 amphibious battalion will be able to move to the desired area without the need for communication, combat and support vehicles. The TCG Anatolian vessel, which can accommodate 700 sea-taking vehicles other than the 8-person amphibious force, will have a military hospital with a minimum bed capacity of 30, including the operating room, dental treatment units, and intensive care and infection rooms. It is planned to be launched in 2021 and start to work at the Naval Forces Command.
