I suggested Bangaldesh Navy getting LHDs , I guess my wish kinda sorta came true idk
280 million sorry lol , but yes it's literally Frigate price and Bangladesh Navy will use it as it's flagship for multiple missions.Super cheap. Gotta be more. You sure they’re just 250 million?
The value quoted in wikipedia is from a very old link, and can possibly be dubious. If real, inflation will bring the value to atleast 500 million $ in today's value. Amphibious assault ships are typically very high priced, and have an average cost of a billion dollars. I can see Bangladesh acquiring it in the future, but its not a certainty.280 million sorry lol , but yes it's literally Frigate price and Bangladesh Navy will use it as it's flagship for multiple missions.
They planned this since 2014 , these Dokdos are perfect for us.
We can do UN and or humanitarian operations or ASW operations as well
We do also operate a Korean ship as well , Ulsan class frigate so it will be easy to get this from the Koreans
Those LHDs are much larger , these Dokdos aren't that big but yeah 500 million usd a bit too much maybe 400.
Well the Navy fleet commander said it and Bangladesh had these plans since 2014 we will definitely aqquire these LHDs by 2027 or so I guess.
One Dokdo won't hurt
What I'm concerned about is we still don't even have a next gen frigate program partner.
If we're going to get a flagship carrier in the near future we need to gaurd this carrier task force with our frigates and corvettes
