Warships in Action. by John Gourley
The largest and most versatile ships of their type afloat, able to carry troops, VTOL aircraft, helicopters, landing craft, and vehicles including trucks, tanks, and armored personnel carriers, the U.S. Navy's Tarawa and Wasp classes are the ultimate expression of the concept of amphibious warfare. Their unique capabilities also make them ideal for humanitarian relief operations, as recently demonstrated following hurricanes Rita and Katrina.
