This list includes all amphibious ships, mine craft and coastal patrol combatants.
Small craft are listed in brief format at the end of the list.

Ships not yet commissioned, or in long-term overhaul/conversion, are listed in italics.


Navigation and surface-search radars are not listed. All classifications are purely
unofficial and are based on an attempt to use standard classifications throughout all
navies; they may or may not correspond to "official" designations. Where two dates are
given (i.e. 1965/82), the first is the date of initial completion, and the second is the date
of acquisition, conversion, or transfer. Designations given in (parentheses) are assigned
but not displayed on the ship's hull.

Ship Types Included:


Amphibious Assault Ships (LHA/LHD)
Dock Landing Ships & Amphibious Transport Docks (LSD/LPD)
Mine Warfare Ships (MCM, MHC)
Coastal Combatants (PC)
Landing Craft & Small Craft

Note: The Blue Ridge class LCCs are listed with the auxiliaries, as Joint Command
Ships, because they are assigned to a fleet/theater command role and have no connection
to amphibious operations.
Amphibious Assault Ships

Concept/Program: An improved Tarawa class ship; follow-on to the LHAs and


replacements for the LPHs. Properly should have been designated in the LHA series. The
secondary mission of these ships is sea control, with SH-60Bs and AV-8Bs. LHD 8 has
been added to the program by Congress; it will have gas turbine propulsion and possibly
other changes.

Builders: Northrop Grumman Ship Systems/Litton-Ingalls SB, Pascagoula, MS.

Design: Based on LHA with several changes; 5" guns eliminated, certain command
spaces moved from island to hull, docking well and elevators reconfigured, different
docking well gate, missiles re-arranged, additional cargo elevators, internal stowage for
ship's boats, SRS-1 Combat D/F system.

(5 ships)

Displacement: 39,500-40,500 tons full load


Dimensions: 833 x 132 x 26 feet/253.9 x 40.2 x 8 meters
Propulsion: 2 boilers, steam turbines, 2 shafts, 70,000 shp, 22 knots
Crew: approx. 1,060
Well Deck: 268 x 78 feet/81.7 x 23.8 meters; 1 LCAC or 4 LCU

Cargo: 30,000 square feet vehicle, 110,000 cubic feet bulk
Radar: SPS-48E 3-D air search, SPS-40E 2-D air search, Mk23 target acquisition, SPN-

Aviation: full flight deck, half-length hangar, 1 deck-edge and 1 centerline elevator; ~35
helicopters and VSTOL
Armament: 2 21-cell RAM, 2 20mm Phalanx CIWS, 2 25mm Bushmaster, 8 12.7mm
MG

Concept/Program: Large carrier-like assault ships, combining the functions of LPH,


LSD/LPD, and LKA types, and serving as command ships. Extremely versatile, multi-
role ships. These ships are aging more quickly than expected, some life-extension work
has been done, but replacements are needed.

Builders: Litton/Ingalls SB, Pascagoula, MS.

Design: Large, bulky design with large flight deck and island; large cargo capacity. The
relatively short, wide docking well only provides space for 1 LCAC. Originally had 5"
guns at flight deck corners, and Sea Sparrow BPDMS launchers. Fitted with extensive
command and hospital spaces
Modifications: There have been some updates, but no comprehensive overhaul/life
extension work has been undertaken. All 5" guns and Sea Sparrow BPDMS have been
removed from these ships; RAM has been added. The radars associated with the 5" guns
were initially retained when the guns were removed, but the radars have now been
removed as well. Boat crane, boat deck and several boats are being removed to reduce
topweight.

Dock Landing Ships &
Amphibious Transport
Docks
San Antonio class amphibious

Displacement: 25,296 tons full load


Dimensions: 683.7 x 104.6 x 23 feet/208.4 x 31.9 x 7 meters
Propulsion: 4 diesels, 2 shafts, 42,000 bhp, 21 knots
Crew: 422
Well Deck: approx. 170 x 50 feet; for 2 LCAC or 4 LCM(8) or 6 LCM(6)
Troops: 759 + 97 transient berths
Cargo: 25,402 square feet vehicle, 25,548 cubic feet bulk
Radar: SPS-48E 3-D air search, SPQ-9B search
Fire Control: SWY-2 missile control; CEC system
EW: SLQ-32(V)3 active jamming, SLA-10B, Mk53 SRBOC decoy RL, SLQ-25A Nixie
torpedo countermeasure
Aviation: aft flight deck; landing for 2-4 helicopters; hangar for 1 CH-53E or 2 CH-46 or
1 MV-22 or 3 UH/AH-1
Armament: 2 21-cell RAM, 2 30mm Mk46 Bushmaster DP, 12.7mm MG

Concept/Program: A new, large, highly capable LPD class intended to operate


independently or as part of an amphibious group (with an LHA/LHD and LSD).
Although nominally intended to replace LSTs, LKAs and LPDs decommissioned during
the 1990's, they will actually replace the existing LPDs and LSDs. The program has been
extensively delayed during the design phase.

Builders: Northrop Grumman Ship Systems, New Orleans, LA and Pascagoula, MS.

Design: Considerably larger than any previous LPD or LSDs; large cargo capability, and
major command capability. Stealthy design; designed for lower operating costs, and will
incorporate significant new technology. Will have large enclosed composite masts, with
radars housed internally. There is provision for a 16-cell VLS, but this will not be fitted.
The 30mm Bushmaster turrets are taken from the AAAV assault vehicle.

Harpers Ferry class amphibous


transport docks (4 ships)

Displacement: 16,500 tons full load


Dimensions: 609.5 x 84 x 19.75 feet/185.7 x 25.6 x 6 meters
Propulsion: 4 diesels, 2 shafts, 41,600 bhp, 22 knots
Crew: 333
Well Deck: estimated 220 x 50 feet/67 x 15 meters; 2 LCAC
Troops: 400 + 100 surge capacity
Cargo: 13,000 square feet vehicle, 40,000 cubic feet bulk
Radar: SPS-49(V)5 2-D air search
EW: SLQ-32(V)1 intercept, Mk36 SRBOC decoy RL, SLQ-25 Nixie torpedo
countermeasure
Aviation: aft flight deck; landing for 4 helicopters
Armament: 2 21-cell RAM, 2 20mm Phalanx CIWS, 2 25mm Bushmaster low-angle, 8
12.7mm MG

Concept/Program: This is the so-called "Cargo Variant" of the LSD 41 design; in


practical terms these ships are LPDs, not LSDs. This design trades docking well size for
cargo space. They were designated LPDX during the design stage, but designated LSD
when built; should have been numbered LPD 17-20.

Builders: Avondale SY, New Orleans, LA.


Design: These ships are essentially identical to the LSD 41 class except the docking well
is reduced by 50% in order to increase bulk cargo space by 800%. RAM launchers have
been fitted in all ships, and an improved self-defense combat system is to be fitted.

Concept/Program: LSDs built as replacements for the old Thomaston class ships;
primary design objective was transport of numerous LCACs.

Builders: Lockheed SB, Seattle, WA (LSD 41-43); Avondale SY, New Orleans, LA
(LSD 44-48).

Design: Developed from Anchorage class. These are the first diesel-powered LSDs.
Have a very long docking well with extensive ventilation to facilitate LCAC operations,
and large forward superstructure block. RAM launchers have been fitted in most ships,
and an improved self-defense combat system is to be fitted. LSD 47 is testing LPD 17
technologies and "Smart Gator" automation/manning-reduction systems.

Armament: 2 20mm Phalanx CIWS, 2 25mm Bushmaster low-angle, 8 12.7mm MG

Concept/Program: USN's second LPD class; essentially improved versions of the


pioneer LPDs. These are general-purpose ships and are employed both in groups and
independently. LPD 11 of this type was converted to a command ship, AGF 11. Proposed
SLEPs were cancelled, but the ships have continued in service; their electronics and
combat systems outfit is obsolete. These ships will be replaced by the LPD 17 class.

Builders: New York Naval Shipyard; Ingalls SB, Pascagoula, MS; Lockheed SB &
Construction, Seattle, WA.

Design: Typical LPD/LSD design; superstructure forward, boats, funnels and cranes
midships, helicopter platform aft. LPD 7-13 are fitted as flagships; they have an
additional bridge level. LPD 4 has no hangar.

Dimensions: 170.5 x 25 x 8 feet/52 x 7.6 x 2.4 meters (PC 2,8,13,14: 179 feet/56 meters
long)
Propulsion: 4 diesels, 4 shafts, 13,400 bhp, 35 knots
Crew: 28
Troops: 9 SEALs or Coast Guard detachment
Sonar: hull mounted HF side-scan
EW: APR-39(V)1 radar warning, Mk52 decoy RL
Armament: 1 Stinger SAM station (6 missiles), 1 25mm Bushmaster/40 mm grenade
launcher (stabilized mount), 1 25mm Bushmaster low-angle, 2 dual 12.7mm MG, 1
single 12.7mm MG, 2 7.62mm MG, 1 40mm grenade launcher

Concept/Program: A group of patrol boats intended for SEAL/SpecOps transport and


support, but too large to effectively serve in that role. All boats have been assigned to
Coast Guard operational control, with Navy crews and Coast Guard boarding teams, for
homeland defense missions. Although the transfer is officially temporary, it seems likely
these vessesl will eventually be permanently transferred to the Coast Guard. In addition,
PC 1 was previously transferred to USCG but remains laid up for lack of sufficient crew
and operating funds.
