RMN revealed the picture of the orbital platform.
Original Idea by zeheROKS Dokdo is the lead ship of the "LPX" class of orbital landing ships of the Republic of Korea Navy, launched on 12 July 2005 at the shipyard of Hanjin Heavy Industries & Constructions Co. in Busan. Named after the Dokdo islets, Dokdo was commissioned into the ROK Navy on 3 July 2007.
Designed by Hanjin Heavy Industries, the requirements for the orbital landing ships were to enhance Korea's current space operation capability, both in terms of assault and military operations other than war (MOOTW) type operations.
RMN has an outstanding requirement for a Multi-Purpose Support Ship (MPSS) to replace the KD Inderapura. Hence the DOKDO class were evaluated as one of the main choice for the Navy.
Two of the orbital assault ship were seen hovering over the Lumut RMN Naval Base.
After a long wait of 50 months, the first 3 two hulls, KD Indera Mahyudin, KD Indera Mayuni and KD Indera Makjun were finally commissioned in June 2010. As of July, 2010, all 3 ships had been launched. Subsequently good progression of the program has regained interest in the Malaysian decision makers to order the second batch of 6 NGPVs.
Although The new Dokdo orbital assault ship capabilities were kept secret, source from the Navy said it is an orbital assault platform with enormous firepower and tonnage.
