Allied Warships

Dock landing ships


The Ashland class dock landing ship USS Lindenwald (LSD 6) 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.

All Dock landing ship classes

The list is divided by navy, then ordered by commissioned date of each class (oldest first).
