Description: HMAS Manoora (L 52) (formerly USS Fairfax County (LST-1193)) is a Kanimbla class Landing Platform Amphibious ship currently in service with the Royal Australian Navy
The ship was constructed for the United States Navy as a Newport class tank landing ship by the National Steel and Shipbuilding Company at San Diego in California. She was acquired by the Royal Australian Navy and commissioned as Manoora in 1994, for use as an amphibious transport ship. This required the ship to be extensively reconstructed, essentially making it a new vessel; the second ship of the Kanimbla class.
