    I think you are missing the point this is not a good thing

    The 12 commissioned units are

    3320-3323
    3330-3333
    3336-3339

    What you see in JNCX are commissioned units, why are almost all of the commissioned units sitting back in dock for months on end? When they should be out doing missions

    LPDs are sailing empty

    these two units were commissioned at the start of the year 3239 and 3237, so these are new units

    great to see them running around empty what exactly is the purpose of running these units

    decade later no cargo ever seen on these not even a small jeep while it enters and leaves the well deck

    now I will wait for someone to post that photo of Type 726 with the MBT to prove me wrong !

    I think each of the LCACs is supposed to have 4x turbine engines? It is hardly surprising these issues are happening. I doubt these engines are even the top priority currently. But they should get them working eventually.
