A refit of the Royal Navy's primary casualty reception ship has been completed in Falmouth.
The hospital has been upgraded
The work on 28,000-tonne RFA Argus has cost £12m and will extend her operational life to 2020.
RFA Argus's main role is to provide specialist aviation-training facilities, but she also has a 100-bed hospital and operating theatres.
The hospital has been upgraded and her diesel generators replaced together with improvements to aviation systems.
A&P will now maintain the ship for the rest of her working life in a new deal with the Ministry of Defence.
