The Royal Navy´s flagship, the 18,000-tonne (176 x 28,9m) amphibious assault ship HMS Albionö passed Helsingborg/Helsingør today about 3.20 PM on its way to Copenhagen. The Plymouth-based HMS Albion carries troops and vehicles up to the size of the Challenger 2 main battle tank. She deploys the forces using four Landing Craft Utility (LCUs) and four Landing Craft Vehicle and Personnel (LCVPs). The flight deck supports helicopter operations. The ship is currently used to attend incidents around the world.
Wikipedia gives some additional information about HMS Albion´s recent activities:
In June 2011, the ship had been redeployed along with the Response Force Task Group to the Gulf of Sidra off Libya to provide assistance to the ongoing NATO-led operation there. She subsequently continued on to the Indian Ocean, passing through the Suez Canal on 15 June, to assist with anti-piracy operations off the Horn of Africa. In Autumn 2011 she is due to enter a state of "extended readiness" (that is, join the UK's equivalent to a reserve fleet), when (her sister ship) Bulwark completes a major refit.
