Just for comparison, a look at a more modern LST.  Built without the bow doors, but still capable of offloading tanks and similar vehicles.
But even these are being mothballed now.
If you want to use one of the full sized images on your ship's website, but need it in a smaller physical size, please let me know and I will be happy to do the reducing for you.  I just want to keep the image quality high, and the photos you are downloading have been compressed to a smaller file size to shorten download time.  I have high quality scans of each one that I can work from.  JS
