USS Tripoli haracteristics USS TRIPOLI is an amphibious assault ship designed to transport helicopters and Marine Corps troops to foreign shores and launch an airborne invasion by landing an assault force behind enemy lines. This form of a troop landing utilizes the concept of vertical envelopment. TRIPOLI is 602 feet long and 84 feet wide, supporting a one-half acre flight deck. She is capable of accommodating approximately 2,500 people and 30 helicopters, and providing for all the needs of these. The ship has over 750 compartments, displaces 18,000 tons and has a draft of 29 feet. Her single shaft propulsion machinery can develop 22,000 horsepower, which can drive the ship in excess of 20 knots. She has the facilities for distilling over 100,000 gallons of fresh water per day. Her electrical plant is capable of supplying enough power to serve a small "land-based" city. As with most small towns, TRIPOLI contains a post office, a chapel, a barbershop, and a library. She also has her own laundry, graphics arts shop, photo lab, and a radio and television station, as well as a complete hospital and dental facility.
