      Fantastic, Jack!
      One of these three it is. Looks quite the same, and overall the details are also alike. Thank you!!

        Now I'm thinking backwards, I think we were involved in this exercise and embaked at the HNLMS Tjerk Hiddes.

                      Although it sail under sivilian flag today, this is "Maursund" (former KNM "Maursund") which I choose to post here because it still operate for the Royal Norwegian Navy whenever needed.
                      Built at Mjellem & Karlsen in Bergen back in 1972, it left military use and reg. L4504 in 2003 to be rebuilt for SeaWorks as a sivil charter landing craft.
                      In 2009 it was resertificated for European sailing, and it is used every year to move reindeers for the same people and to haul cargo to Svalbard and Jan Mayen.
                      The last week she has been moored in Kristiansund, and today she moved to dock #3 at Vestbase.
                      Being difficult to photograph in the harbour, I decided today was time to make my move.
                      Didn't bring my Pentax, so this is purely a FujiFilm work...

                      And please don't ask what that "thingy" at the stern are...., I don't know...
                      IT'S TRUE!!

                      EDIT:
                      Well..., not entirely. What I don't know I have a tendency to investigate. The "thingy" at the stern is a raiseable gate to open up for the stern on-/offloading ramp.
                      When she sailed as a KNM vessel, she also had one retractable thruster in each corner of the stern for use when they moved up on the shore. These are now removed.

                          RFA Sir Lancelot

                          Since we are into landing craft type of Naval vessels, here is a picture of RFA Sir Lancelot in Grytviken, South Georgia in 1987:

                          Picture has been copied from Shipnostalgia.com, Gallery.

                          My Father-in-Law, Capt.A.J.Walker, was Master on the Sir Lancelot in the 1960s, when she looked like this:


                          Seen in Hong Kong as Glen Breavheart back in 2005:


                          And in Singapore in 2006:


                          Before going to the breakers in Bangladesh in 2008.

                          PS> I have posted a picture of this ship on CVF before.

                            I think this third one might be "Peter the Great":

                              Let me see...., this one with the hull number 099 is 'Pyotr Velikiy', the flagship of the Russian Navy Northern Fleet.
                              She's a Kirov-class "heavy nuclear-powered rocket cruiser".

                              Hull number 050 in your post there is 'Admiral Lazarev', also a Kirov-class cruiser.

                              Not sure about hull number 014 though...
