Leaf Class Tanker


The Leaf class is a class of support tanker of the British Royal Fleet Auxiliary (RFA).
These ships are chartered to the MOD for transport of FFO, Dieso and AVGas. The role of support tanker generally involves the bulk transport of fuel oils between distribution centres, the replenishment of front-line fleet tankers and using their replenishment at sea (RAS) abilities to allow them to directly support naval warships in a limited capacity.
This model depicts Appleleaf, Brambleleaf and Bayleaf. Bayleaf and Brambleleaf used for Falklands Campaign.
(There are minor differences throughout this class, the model is actually of Appleleaf, though is easily used for the other 2, whose side gantries are exposed rather than being blocked in. Oakleaf and Orangeleaf have larger deckhouses and an extra fuelling derrick respectively.)
This is a 5 piece kit comprising Hull, bridge supertructure, fore mast, fuelling derrick, and support mast.
