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.
