Of the many assault ships in the world, which type is arguably the best in the world? To find out, India's well-known media has leaked a row of types of amphibious assault ships that are among the best in the world.

Launching Defense View, take a look at the best amphibious assault ships in the world, including:

America-class amphibious assault ship

First place is undoubtedly the America class of the US Navy. Its flight deck is 257 meters long, 32 meters wide, and weighs 45,693 tons. From the data measured on the satellite map, the width of the flight deck.

In fact, it reaches 36.3 to 36.4 meters, and its length is 250.3 meters. The America-class amphibious assault ship is the largest amphibious assault ship in the world. The America Class is used as an aircraft carrier in the U.S. Marine Corps, so no docking cabins for either ship are in service.

Currently, two ships are in active service, while the other two will join in 2024.

Wasp-class amphibious assault ship

Ranked second is the Wasp-class amphibious assault ship, with a total of 8 in service. Since Goodman Richard burned down in July 2020, only seven have remained. This type of ship has a length of 257 meters, a width of 31.8 meters, and has a displacement of 40,500 tons.

From the data measured on satellite imagery, the flight deck is 249.5 meters long, ranking second in the world, excluding floating lifts, and 35.9 meters wide.

Izumo Class and Trieste LHD

There is no doubt about the ranking of the champions and runners-up, but for the third place, the competition is a little tight. Judging from satellite imagery, Japan's Izumo class and Italy's Trieste class have the potential to be the third runner-up.

Judging from the length of the flight deck, the data marked by netizens is that the Izumo class is 245.2 meters, and the Trieste class is 232 meters. As for the width of the Trieste class flight deck, 35.3 meters, 44 meters wide, Izumo class 37.2 meters, and with a floating lift, the widest point.

It even reaches 46.4 meters, even bigger than the America class. For wide, is a well-deserved champion. It is not surprising to think that the position is actually aimed at aircraft carriers.

In fact, the displacement of the Izumo class of 27,000 tons should be hidden, but it will not reach 45,000 tons. Because the original design did not have a docking cabin, and the hull was a relatively sharp inverted trapezoid.

The hulls of amphibious assault ships are generally square in shape, so the Izumo class is greatly expanded from the ground up, especially the flight deck, which floats a little too much. It is estimated that the actual displacement of the Izumo class should be around 30,000 tons.
