The ships can perform underwater repair works and wreck removal through divers, atmospheric diving suit and ROVs & heli operations. MoShip will have the necessary infrastructure for the deployment of both the US Submarine Rescue Diving and Recompression System (SRDRS) and NATO Submarine Rescue System (NSRS). The availability of two different rescue concepts provides an opportunity for cooperation with other navies.
