Description: The MARS programme will provide afloat logistic support to UK and allied maritime Task Groups (TG) at sea and their amphibious components operating ashore. New vessels will incrementally replace much of the existing Royal Fleet Auxiliary flotilla. The capability is designed to support maritime units undertaking discrete Military Tasks and Standing Commitments and both Carrier Strike and Littoral Manoeuvre TG capabilities. MARS comprises four elements: bulk consumables, non-bulk consumables, solid stores, forward aviation support (the provision of helicopter basing and operating facilities to accommodate some Task Group rotary wing platforms, or to provide operational flexibility during a campaign.) The initial focus is on the replacement of Single Hull Tankers required in order to comply with International Maritime environmental standards. The MARS programme will continue to be reported on as a single programme until the final performance cost and time envelope for Tankers has been agreed with the MOD Approving Authority, which is anticipated Dec 2012.
