Myanmar Navy’s new LPD ‘Moattama’ in Vladivostok


Myanmar’s LPD was built in South Korea by DAE SUN Shipbuilding & Engineering Co., Ltd. A contract for the Moattama was likely signed in early 2018, but the construction of the vessel for Myanmar became publicly known only after it was launched in Busan in July 2019. It was delivered in September of this year. It is making this port-of-call in Russia on its maiden voyage from South Korea, before reaching Myamar. Its design is based on the South Korean-built Makassar-class of the Indonesian Navy but is visually closer to the Tarlak-class of the Philippine Navy. A total 10 ships of this type have been built so far for the navies of Indonesia, Peru, the Philippines, and now Myanmar. The design is said to be very affordable.
