LONDON -- The United Kingdom has reportedly come to an agreement to sell the HMS Ocean to Brazil. The deal is worth an estimated £84 million ($113.5 million). The agreement follows formal authorization from the Brazilian Ministry of Defense to begin negotiations in December 2017.

The Royal Navy plans to decommission the vessel in March 2018. It will then remain in the U.K. until about September or October undergoing upgrades and repairs before being delivered to Brazil. The move will leave the U.K. without an active aircraft carrier until the HMS Queen Elizabeth enters service in 2020.

While amphibious assault ships have typically not been a priority for Brazil, the Brazilian Navy has focused more on the vessels in recent years. If a deal is signed, the vessel would be the second to enter Brazilian service in recent years. In April 2016, Brazil received the ex-Siroco, a Foudre-class landing platform dock, from France. Amphibious vessels enable Brazil to extend its power projection and to participate in international peacekeeping missions.
