"The US Army has picked Vigor Marine to build the service's new landing craft, dubbed maneuver support vessel (light) MSV(L).

Worth almost a billion dollars ($979.7m), the contract is the largest award in Vigor's history.

The award comes concurrent with a "Milestone B" decision that moves the program into its engineering and manufacturing development phase.

Over the next four years, the Army will work with Vigor Works, LLC as it produces a full-scale prototype for additional evaluation and to inform the program's final requirements…"

The US Army actually has more ships than the US Navy. And they're ALL landing ships.

And I really think that the French have the best Landing Craft design right now.
