The Saviour class hospital ship is one of the largest hospital ships in the world, and is a custom-redesigned Maersk Triple E class vessel. The ship features top-of-the-line medical and commercial equipment, supplicated by the technologies and skills of the New Hayesalian Navy. The vessel is a non-combat vessel and is permanently emblazoned with the symbol of the Red Cross as a protected vessel.
The vessel features radars for navigation and identification purposes, as well as an acoustic undersea noisemaker with a unique and unnatural tone, which allows the ship to be easily identified by non-visual means. The vessel is also covered with blue and white LED light bars, which can be switched as needed, which light the vessel in an unnatural light that can be seen from as far as 10 nautical miles at night.
The vessel is constructed with bulkheads made atop the structure of the 33,000 TEU carrying vessel. This redesign was finalised in 2008 and the vessels entered service in 2009.
The vessel is able to be sent on patrols and tours of duty, providing top-notch international aid, supporting international partnerships and humanitarian missions, as well as providing an emergency hospital for soldiers in the field. Three Savior class ships received the Prime Minister's Citation when they rendered assistance to hundreds of thousands of victims of the South Zellatian nuclear incidents of 2014.
There are a total of 2,000 beds available, which are sorted towards the aft of the vessel (with galleys, crew accommodation and facilities to the fore). These beds are sorted into the following categories of care:
There are also 25 operating theatres aboard the vessel. The included ship's facilities include:
Aircraft are operated and stored at the flight deck, with six Chinook aircraft used to provide and air ambulance capability. A lower vehicle hangar carries ambulances or EOD response vehicles, which can be deployed to shore to assist in disaster recovery and patient transport. A well deck fits four LCM-1E landing craft.
