USN-M1: LHD-1 Wasp


LHD-1 Wasp - specifically sized to the GHQ model.

The Wasp class is based on the preceding Tarawa-class design. The design was modified to allow for the operation of AV-8B Harrier II aircraft and Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC) hovercraft, making the Wasp class the first ships specifically designed to operate these.
