Buy one get one free, probably high mileage but in good condition and capable of taking upgrades, this has to be considered a a very good deal for the Bangladeshis.

Cheers Mike, will you be there to see them in?
As 'Warship Disposal' stated earlier, the tug Vengeance was originally earmarked to take the LC to the Tyne but was found to be too small for the job and no doubt the tow would have taken a wee bit longer.

Hi Stevo
Not sure where she is, but the Bangladesh Navy has bought two of them, also HMS Dumbarton Castle, is she at Portsmouth also?

Yes Dumbarton Castle is still at Portsmouth and I presume waiting for the Multratug 7 to return to take her in tow for the Tyne.
