Mobile Amphibious Squadron (2019 onwards)

In 2018, plans were presented to reform the Auxiliary Freighter Group to make it smaller and to move it into Wembury for a more proactive role in future operations of the SDF-Navy, a lesson learned from Operation Spartacus, or rather the preparations for it.

On the 1st of April 2019, these changes were initiated. Upon commissioning in June 2019, the Pattern 1199 Lighter Carrier SDFS Annamh, as well as its Bevington-class Gunboats, were attached to the Mobile Amphibious Squadron.
