Just a little correction RFA Argus’s primary role is that of Primary Casualty Receiving Vessel. Aviation training is what she does when she is not being used in her officialy designated role.

Originally the Aviation training was her main role, with PCRS as secondary. These priorities were swapped around after the PCRF updates.

Looks as if the Koreans built these 4 so quickly we haven’t thought what to do with them! I’d give them the Blueprints to the Type 26 and hey presto 13 frigates in 3/4 the time and at half the BAE cost. Rock on.

nope..Argus was originally bought and re-designed as an aviation training ship and only got the PCRF role after gulf war 1

Argus. The PCRF hospital is the primary role, then Aviation Training, but aviation is the main tasking at I guess 80%. PCRF is 5%, but with a small team keeping it ready for quick activation. Argus is a very flexible and capable platform.

Glad to see the RFA’s in Gibraltar to show we mean business. If we need to.

The man with the plan

PCRS or PCRF .. Which one is ARGUS?

PCRS = Primary Casualty Receiving Ship = RFA Argus
PCRS = Primary Casualty Receiving Facility = hospital complex within RFA Argus

Correction to my last. Last line was meant to start PCRF.
