Austin-class Landing Platform Dock

From Canadian Power Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The Austin-class landing platform docks are a class of amphibious transport dock that followed the Raleigh-class. They were replaced by the San Antonio-class.

Vessels from the Cleveland and Trenton-subclasses onward had an extra level in the superstructure housing a flag bridge and command and control facilities for an embarked staff which the earlier ships lack.

In 2007, the United States government transferred USS Nashville (LPD-13) and USS Trenton (LPD-14) to the Indian Navy.
