Japanese Navy – Amphibious Assault Ships

Amphibious Assault Ships

Back to Japanese Navy Battleships

Ōsumi Class LOA 584′ / 178 m TDISP 9,000 tons (3 active, service since 1998) Though these are termed large Landing Ships, they fulfill the role of Amphibious Transport Dock, and by size and length of flight deck and well deck, they seem to be an example of a small Amphibious Assault Ship.
