Dock landing ships
These hybrid vessels were thought up in Nov 1941. They were designed to transport loaded landing craft, amphibious vehicles and troops into amphibious landing areas. Once landing was established they served as offshore repair docks.
All Dock landing ship classes (in service with the US Navy).
Please note that we list the classes by navies that initiated/owned the class. Often vessels of certain classes were then built for other nations (or lent), those ships are not visible here but only through the navies pages or by looking into each class.
