The contract will also include execution of industrial post-delivery availabilities.

Ingalls LPD 17 life-cycle programme manager David King said: “We appreciate the navy’s continued investment in our experienced team and their reliance on the support we provide.

“This contract builds on our strong partnership with the navy in the construction and post-delivery management of navy ships. We look forward to supporting these ships as they evolve to meet the changing threat environment.”

With 684ft length and 105ft width, San Antonio-class vessels are designed to displace approximately 25,000t and can carry up to 800 troops.

The ships have the capability of transporting and debarking landing craft air cushion (LCAC) or conventional landing crafts, ‘augmented’ by helicopters or vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft such as the MV-22 Osprey.
