The LPD design (no project name was given to us) may accomodate 360 embarked troops in adition to its crew of 130 sailors (plus 15 for the aviation detachement). The LPD's endurance is in excess of 45 days.
Two S-70 type helicopters can fit in the hangar while the deck may accept one CH-47 Chinook helicopter. The CSTC representatives could not give us the overall length of this LPD project but gave us a displacement of 22,000 tons.
