The EDIC or Engin de débarquement d'infanterie et de chars are large landing crafts that operate in the French Navy, Lebanese Navy, Senegalese Navy, Ethiopian Navy and Djiboutian Navy. EDICs have the typical Landing Craft Utility design with a bow ramp and have a large aft superstructure compared to the far derivative CDIC. They are designed for coastal support as well as to operate from mother ships such as BPCs (Mistral type) or TCDs (Foudre type).
