LHA-class warships are the centerpiece of Fleet Marine Force operations in sea denial and sea control. They enable power projection as the global crisis response force-in-readiness. Acquisition of LHA 9 integrates American naval power with current hot production lines and helps us strengthen our nation’s supplier base of 457 companies in 39 states to build this critical warship. By retaining and sustaining the production of LHA-class ships, HII has the unsurpassed capability and the capacity to deliver the fleet our nation needs today and for the future.
