    Hmm possibly.

    I do think that all 072 variants have a continuous single cargo section/well deck.

    It's not really a well deck as such I suppose, because it cannot be flooded at all, but it does allow deployment of AFVs or boats from the aft door.

    I think this cutaway is relatively instructive, even if all the cutaways from warship knowledge magazine are not fully 100% accurate, but in this case I think it's about right

    We can see from a lot of pix that the AFV goes out from front and in from back. Can't imagine the well is not all the way through.
