The L30-class, the ship that do to much! Relax Dave

The L30 class is a class of ship that is small enough to be operated with a small and young crew with 2 experienced officer. It's role was:
- cargo transport out to the many small bases, placed around on the many Islands, but also support the public on behalf of the government.
it's secondary roles:
- supplying small boats with fuel, ammunition, food, etc.
- supplying submarines
- supporting army operation at landing, by transporting equipment to shore and providing a helicopter deck.
- can operate as a lead ship in small convoys, if needed.

L30 class was a part of a large support fleet of the Caledonia Navy, they operate as a totally separate organisation, in similar fashion to the Coast guard, it is also the main reason for these support ships having some armament, some of them have even a heavier armament expected of a support ship. L30 class worked alongside ships like (Note these drawings will be updated in the future):

The L10 class family

L10 class is a series of medium sized landing craft in Caledonia Navy, intended to replace many of the aging landing craft of various sizes and types and reduce it to one common design-family, to simplify and reduce operation cost of these vessels. The Navy build strategy is to build many of them in over several build periods. The Navy are expecting to build at least around a 60 of them, or more.

They are replacing L1-class family, that have been the work force in the Navy, since the 70's, but are showing there age and battle wounds.

Currently there are two version in the family:
- L10-Standard
- L10B-DT (Drive Trough)

L10B-DT can also be used as a dock or giving larger ships with bowport an easier way to load of at places without docks.

Planned for the future:
- L10-MEDIC
- L10-Command
- L10-Fire-support /area defence
- L10-Helicopter platform

-----------
Class: L10 and L10B
Type: landing craft Heavy, medium
Planned: 60+ in several build period
Build: 15
In service: 10
------------

Length: 46,3 meter (hull)
Beam: 12.5 meter
Draft: 2 meter
Displacement: 300-600 tons
Propulsion: 2 Kamewa Jets, powered by 2 x 1500 hp V16 Diesel engines, trough a Havok complex gear, giving the vessel ability to run both water jet on 1 engine.
Speed: 10 to 18 knots
Crew: from 4 to 8
Armament: (in lockers)

I like it! Bit like a bigger, purpose-built relative of Czernicki. ;)
One thing I really like about Your AU is that You put much effort into support and auxiliary vessels, not just the front-line warships.

These are quite dinky support/amphib ships but I like them, compact yet flexible and useful designs.
