Australian warships retire from duties
quote:

Over the last decade, three vessels from the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) have been the backbone of Australia’s military deployments in the islands region: the amphibious landing ships HMAS Manoora and HMAS Kanimbla and the heavy landing ship HMAS Tobruk.

But now, all three are out of action.
