    Why is it an outdated concept ? Do you mean that these sort of landing ships should be replaced with LHD or just this class is badly designed and should be redigned ?  

    And what is the new naval doctrine ? Can you develop ?

    I think that it's wrong to call the ship outdated, why. As it was mentioned before and as it is quite obvious this is a 120m long ship not a 200-250m long universal amphibious assault monster. Sure, I would like to see a 100 mm gun on the front and a close in air defense systems based on missiles (or a combined module) but it's still ok, it has the "Grad" like launchers for land targets, two helicopters and a big loading crane.

    Basically you are saying that only a 200m long ship can be of any use to the naval infantry.
