Interesting factoid: L01 and L02 are STOL amphibious assault ships repurposed by the Australian Navy as helo ships. At least one is always in the harbor in case a Very Important Person in the government or visitor is in need of a helicopter because there are no helicopter landing areas on land in Sydney.
