Finally after hours and hours of drawing and trying to make it as realistic as possible.
My original intend was to create an Joint support Ship better than the one i currently serve on (HNLMS Karel Doorman A833).
This already grew quickly to a ship that was way more expensive and larger.
However here is the story and the ship:
The Royal Fryssian Navy and its Union needed a replacement for the 3 old CBG AOR's they currently had in their inventory.
These 3 units where of the A135 Class and employed since 1977 till 2016.
The old units where just regular large tanker that could move with the same speed as the fleet carriers that had regular engines. This speed was set around 27-28 knots.
The new CVN's however where faster and larger, their CBG also have bigger units with faster speeds.
This set the requirement for the first specs of the replacements in the A135 Class.
Besides this the world was changing and the fleets aswell. Less units but bigger, and more tasks than one.
It was thereafter decided that these ships would become JSS (Joint Support Ship) type vessels.
An ship of the class JSS can do various amount of tasks.
-Replenishment At Sea
With all these ideas packed togheter, the design board's started to draw.
Out of those plans the A170 Kopenhuuwen Class was born.
However duo to budget cuts and rising costs the class was just hold at 2 units.
Both ships have a Role 2 hospital with 3 surgical rooms, 10 beds for fast treatment and 35 treatment beds for post op.
They can also take an CT scan with them and employ extra fieldbeds in case of emergency
Besides these role 2 items they can also employ dentist's with 2 chairs and a x-ray. And they can treat people with deceases in quarantaine rooms.
The following depends on setup of the ship, but it indicated the maximum of each.
For support and transport these ships can hold 5x 45 foot containers outside on deck, and 4x 20 foot.
Internally they can fit 10x 20 foot containers that can be cooled or heated by power. And 10x 20 foot containers for dry storage.
They have a vehicle deck that has 2000 lane meters for trucks and cars.
Two cranes for 40 tons of carriage.
Dry ammunition/goods stores for 2000 tonnes.
7000M3 of fuel, 7000m3 Aviation fuel, 500M3 water storage. And 4 water makers with a bottle filler system
As of 2021 both units have been used in various operations.
