US Navy Launches LHA 7 Tripoli Amphibious Assault Ship (Video)

LHA 7 Tripoli

The US Navy has launched the second America-class amphibious assault ship LHA 7 Tripoli at Huntington Ingalls Industries’ (HII) shipyard.

LHA 7 Tripoli was successfully launched after the dry-dock was flooded allowing the vessel to float off for the first time.

LHA 7 Tripoli is expected to be delivered to the US Navy in late 2018.

      Almost , about 45′ short but displacement is a little more. It should be 900′ long.

    US wasting more scarce resources and creating more targets for high speed missiles.

    This seems to be a mini carrier for the F35 and Ospreys with no well deck for disembarking heavy tanks or armored vehicles. Even later ships with a well deck, their well deck will be smaller, the extra space being designated for aviation needs. It seems in future wars, the mode of landing marines will be by Ospreys, not landing craft.

    Wasting more money for more wars to advance Jews plans for everyone else’s countries.
    I do not want a single penny of my tax money spent on Military at all, unless it is protecting our own boarder from the Zionist-Mexican-invasion at the south border.
    We only need troops deployed at the Mexican and Canadian borders, no where else in the world to American Patriots belong.
