Royal Fleet Auxiliary ARGUS is due out of service in 2024. In the longer term, the Multi Role Support Ship (MRSS) programme will offer an enduring solution to afloat medical support. In the interim, a range of potential options are being explored to mitigate the gap, including a potential short extension in service of RFA ARGUS.
