I was stationed on LHA-5. They had "highly sufficient" well deck capability. Dodging frigging jarhead tank jockeys was always fun.

I was referring to the USS Tripoli LHA-7 an America Class Amphib.

The Tawawa Class ships have some differences from the America Class.

You need to look at the other Amphibs in 1980 when your ship was commissioned.

In 1980:

LSD; Thomaston & Anchorage Class
LPD; Austin Class
LST; Newport Class

2017:

LSD; Whidbey Island & Harper Ferry Classes
LPD; San Antonio Class

Currently they are saying that the LSDs & LPDs have sufficient well deck space to compensate for the America & Tripoli to not have a well deck. These two new LHAs have more hanger, fuel, ammo storage....

[QUOTE=Moulin;3353231]..thanks all replies/posts...Opana can answer those questions better than I
...I was in the FMF from 87-90 and on 4 ships--all of which have been decommissioned/sold/etc
..like I said, the Nassau seemed 'brand new'' to me in 1990
looks like the Inchon launched 1969, Nassau 1978 both decommed after about 30 years, right?
I was on the LST 1180 USS Manitowoc launched 1969-decom 1993, then


what does this mean?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Manitowoc_(LST-1180)
..a lot of old US LSTs were bought by other countries[/QUO

Did you make the 87 Med on Manitowac? I did the 87 and 89 Med and a 88 North Atlantic on Nassau.

Will the Navy name another warship U.S.S. Nassau maybe as part of the America- class amphibs.

The current Nassau is still technically able to be recalled to service. Once the Navy decides she is no longer needed, they will strike her from the rolls, and she will either be scrapped or sunk. At that point there is a possibility that they could use that name again.

Didn't the U.S.S.Nassau get it's name from the raid carried out on Nassau during the Revolutionary War?

Navy Asked to Donate Ex. USS Nassau to Support Humanitarian Relief Worldwide (As of 2013.)

When Peleliu was in Long Beach we had the largest mass casualty capacity in Los Angeles County, 2,000 beds.

Any LHD would be able to do the same job. When one of the Hawaiian islands lost its powerplant to a lava flow one of the LHA tied up to the pier and supplied power until a portable plant could be flown in. Four 750 KW turbo generators on board.

It certainly would be a godsend on the Gulf coast. One the ships en route there is the U.S.S. Kearsarge wasn't she based in Japan not to long ago? I wonder if it would be possible to get large deck amphibs like the Wasp-class or the new America-class to be in service as long as 50 yrs like the Nimitz-class carriers?

You would need good maintenance programs for the ships. Many older ships are in bad shape today because they were not maintained well. They used to take the old aircraft carriers offline for a two year SLEP. The sailors helped and got to see their wives and family. The Air Wing went ashore and practiced operating from land.

The last twenty or so years the Navy has passed on big maintenance rebuilds and just used the ships until they were falling apart. Look at how they let the OH Perry Class run until they were falling apart.

New ships are sexy, rebuilding older ships is not.

And naming new ships after politicians is good for budget money to build ships.

The U.S. Navy needs some new frigates and destroyers. The LCS has been a huge flop.
