Absalon support ship - Danish navy

"Absalon" class support ships - Danish Navy

The Danish Navy's "Absalon" is the second of two new flexible support ships. These are the largest and most versatile ships in the Danish Navy - designed for participation in international operations.

At 137 meters long, the Danish Navy's flagship accomodates a crew of 100 and 70 additional personnel. Another 130 can be housed in temporary container facilities that can be installed if the need arises. One of its impressive features is the ability to launch and recover 7.4t, 12 meter fast insertion craft from the cargo deck trough its port stern while underway, for anti-piracy or special forces operations.

Both the "Absalon" and its sister ship "Esbern Snare" are fitted with Jets™ systems.
