Cool idea and platform, I wonder if it will have any defensive weaponry or sensors just in case a North Korean Sub got antsy. I suppose those Navy Choppers will have ASW capability.

also
Motherships such as Craigside are extremely popular in the Pentagon. A floating base circumvents the potential headaches of having to acquire permission to set up a military base on another country's soil. The fact that they are mobile and deployable is icing on the cake.

Another tactical mothership is Ponce, a formerly retired 1970s amphibious assault ship. In 2012 it was brought back into service as an "Afloat Forward Staging Base" (AFSB).

A modern more versatile version of the Mobile Sea Base Hercules that was in the Persian Gulf during the 80's.
