USS FORT LAUDERDALE is the twelfth SAN ANTONIO - class amphibious transport dock and the first ship in the Navy named after Fort Lauderdale, Florida. While still a Flight I member of her class, FORT LAUDERDALE features a number of modifications compared to previous ships of the class. Most striking are the steel masts instead of the composite masts and that the stern gate is open at the top.
