RFA Mounts Bay (L3008)

Providing logistical support to the Royal Navy by offloading troops where they‘re needed – even in the roughest weather conditions.


Led by Captain Mike Lawrence, since launching in 2004, RFA Mounts Bay’s role has been to support vital amphibious operations and exercises, all over the world. These involve offloading embarked troops, including Royal Marines Commandos, in all weather conditions.

RFA Mount’s Bay is capable of carrying amphibious vehicles and landing craft, so all necessary personnel can reach shore and complete their operation, whether that’s taking food and supplies to a disaster-hit area or supporting forces who are already on the ground.
