Gator Navy - Amphibious Warfare Ships


An amphibious warfare ship is a warship employed to land and support ground forces, such as Marines, on enemy territory during an amphibious assault. The largest fleet of these types is operated by the United States Navy, including the Tarawa-class amphibious assault ships dating back to the 1970s and the newer and larger Wasp class ships that debuted in 1989. These are colloquially known throughout the Navy as  “Gator Freighters” or “Gator Navy”, playing on the Amphibious nature of Alligators.

Product arrived packaged very well to protect from damage. Pictures of the Ship are clear and the customizing was very professional. It doesn’t come framed, but that would make the product more expensive. I can pick out my own frame and it’ll be a lot cheaper. Very happy with this and the workmanship. I’ll definitely order another for my other Ship I was on. It arrived ahead of the estimated delivery date.

This is a must-have if you were in the Navy on a Ship.

Thank you for getting this picture to me so quickly. I love how it looks. My husband saw this and asked me to order it for him. So I ordered it for him for a present and he is going to love it. This is the second shipped he served on while being in the Navy. He is a retired Navy Chief and served 24 years in the Navy. This picture is going to mean a lot to him. Thank you again for offering such a great picture like this.
