About the HMS Fearless

One of the most famous British ships of the post-war period, HMS Fearless was a modern amphibious assault ship known in naval terms as an LPD (Landing Platform Dock). HMS Fearless played a significant role during the Falklands War as part of the British Naval Task Force, acting as a command ship for the operation.

Fearless and her sister ship HMS Intrepid provided Britain and the Royal Navy with an incredibly flexible and highly mobile assault force, able to replenish at sea and therefore capable of steaming to military hotspots anywhere in the world. Her internal vehicle decks could carry 400 troops and their equipment, in addition to up to fifteen Challenger tanks, but this could be increased to 700 troops if no tanks were carried.
