Amphibious Assault Ships - LPH

The Amphibious Assault Ships were designed to transport fully equipped Marine Assault Troops into combat areas and land them by helicopter at designated inland points. The ships were capable of supporting a Marine Batallion Landing Team, its armament, vehicles, equipment and a reinforced squadron of transport helicopters and various support personnel. The ships were also capable of supporting mine-sweeping operations with Helicopter Mine Countermeasure Squadrons and providing humanitarian assistance and non-combatant evacuations of American Embassy personnel and citizens caught in civil-conflict overseas.
