I see that the U.S. Navy has changed their designation from "JHSV" (Joint High Speed Vessel) to "EPF" (Expeditionary Fast Transport) as of September of last year.

POLL DESCRIPTION
The Joint High Speed Vessel (JHSV) was intended for use as a high speed ferry, transporting Marines and cargo across vast ocean spaces. It has a flight deck for helicopter operations and an offload ramp for vehicles. However, it is not a high-survivability vessel like an amphib or combatant.

Should the U.S. support the JHSV with modules, so that it can undertake low-threat/permissive-environment missions, such as theater security cooperation, building partner capacity, peacekeeping, counter-piracy. counter-illicit trafficking, reconnaisance, mine-hunting, and non-combat evacuations?
