RFA Sir Bedivere SLEP version by Mountford new model 2020Here is a new and highly detailed model of the ship RFA Sir Bedivere SLEP (modernised)version. L3004. She was commissioned in 1967 and saw extensive service in many of Britain's naval operations since. Her home port was Marchwood. Sir Bedivere first saw combat in the Falklands War of 1982, and at the start of the war, the ship was at Vancouver, Canada but started back to Marchwood immediately. After loading at Marchwood, she left for Ascension where she picked up the sappers of 11 Field Squadron Royal Engineers. The ship suffered slight damage on 24 May whilst lying in San Carlos Water when an Argentine Skyhawk dropped a bomb that glanced off the ship. The sappers disembarked for Port San Carlos on the evening of the 25th May. In 1994, the ship was modernised in a service life extension programme to give it an extra 15 years. The ship was lengthened by 12 metres, had its superstructure altered to a more modern design, the engines were replaced, and the ship's bow thrusters were changed for more powerful models. This model is of the modernised version. After returning to service in 1998, the ship was sent to Sierra Leone in 2000 when the U.K. intervened there. The ship operated as the command vessel for British and American mine countermeasures ships. She then left the U.K. in September 2002 for the Mediterranean and operation Argonaut in 2002 and was diverted to the Persian Gulf accompanied by four British minesweepers. After minesweeping operations were complete, the vessel operated as a troop support ship for the Royal Marines. The ship returned to the U.K. on 29 May 2003, carrying the boats and men of 539 Assault Squadron Royal Marines. In December 2008, Sir Bedivere was sold to Brazil, joining her sister ship Sir Galahad (XAS 003). She was handed over to the Brazilian Navy on 21 May 2009, after a major refit in Falmouth. She was commissioned into service with the Brazilian Navy, and renamed NDCC Almirante Saboia (G-25), after a late senior naval officer, Admiral Saboia, G25. Thanks to Wikipedia for info.
