I am assuming that first they landed and then the temporary structure was erected on the landing pad.

The ship appears to be tied up close to the pier. The helos were probably transported by ship to whatever port this is, and will be offloaded by crane.

The ship carrying the helicopters has two hangars.
Store one in the hangar and park the other.
After that, I took it out of the hangar and parked it.

AkilaY, these must be Marinefliegergeschwader 5 MK 88 Lynx helos tasked with ASW operations. Are the ships they operate from comparable to the US Navy Oliver Hazard Perry class long hull frigates that operate with SH-60 Seahawks?

For Chris Croft
This ship is the German Navy's Frigate Bayern (4,900t). It is a large ship compared to the Oliver Hazard Perry class (3,225t).

According to Janes Fighting Ships the Braybern displaces 3900 tons/4490 fully loaded. Her length is 139 meters/455 ft. The Oliver Hazard Perry class (long hull) frigates displace 4200 tons fully loaded and are 453 ft long. 290 tons less displacement and 2 ft shorter than the Braybern. In my previous comment I said these vessels were "comparable" so if you want to say the Braybern "is a large ship compared to the Oliver Hazard Perry" be my guest. They appear fairly comparable to me.
