Trieste or Tahon di Revel (the name is not official yet[13]) is a future amphibious multirole unit for the Italian Navy[14], classified officially as Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD). It is expected to replace the Giuseppe Garibaldi and one of the San Giorgio Class assault ships around 2022[15].

The ship will be equipped with heavy and medium helicopters (EH101 and NH90 respectively) and F-35B aircraft.[16] It will have a floatable dock below the hangar level able to accommodate amphibious landing vessels such as LCM, LCAC, L-CAC and newer L-CAT (Landing Catamaran) vessels.[17]

The unit is being built at the Fincantieris Castellamare di Stabia facility near Naples. The first cut was 12 January 2017, it is expected to be complete in 2019 while the official delivery to the Italian Navy will be around 2022.[17]

It will be the largest vessel of the Italian navy along with Cavour.[18][19]
