serious transportation for 'heavy metal'... these RO-RO (roll-on/roll-off) transport ships are used to ferry military vehicles, and are designed to allow the tanks, trucks, and APCs to be driven directly on and off under their own power, using the ramps at the rear of the hullinstead of beinghoistedon and off using cranes, greatly speeding up the loading and unloading process.
