Allied Warships

Dock landing ships

The Casa Grande class dock landing ship USS Comstock (LSD 19) of the US Navy.

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.
