Description: The Military Afloat Reach and Sustainability (MARS) Tankers will replace the current single hulled tankers operated by the Royal Fleet Auxiliary which are no longer fully compliant with international maritime legislation, with an efficient and cost effective solution providing support for the sustainment of Future Force 2020. These ships will provide valuable bulk fuels capability in support of the Royal Navy and forces ashore, including the new QEC Class Aircraft Carriers and on operations as varied as Littoral Manoeuvre, constabulary and humanitarian relief, through to the 2040s. Four Tide Class ships (RFA TIDESPRING, RFA TIDERACE, RFA TIDESURGE, RFA TIDEFORCE) have been ordered from DSME South Korea, to a basic design by UK company BMT Group. Once built the ships will be made ready in the UK for operational deployment during a period of customisation and trials before entering service.
