Landing Ships, Tank (LST)

Part 1 of 4 - LST 1 through LST 400

Most recent update: May 3, 2015.


The LST built by U.S. shipyards for the U.S. Navy was technically the LST Mk. 2, Mk. 1 and Mk. 3 being the British versions.  All the Mk. 2s were essentially the same, 1,625 light tons (LDT) and 328 feet overall (LOA), although some had variations in their outfit.  The total number contracted was 1,155, from 11 private-sector shipyards and 5 Navy yards: 101 of them were cancelled, for a net total of 1,054.  After the war, most of the survivors were scrapped.  The 141 which were still in service in 1955 were then named after counties.
