11th MEU Aviation Combat Element by Lance Cpl. Jason Monty

Hmm.  Can't actually tell from these pics but it appears that the LHA/LHDs are now carrying only MV-22s and F-35s.  Everything else is being squeezed aboard the LPDs.

Wonder how that's working out.

I've seen pics of an LPD carrying an impressive amount of helos (can't find it) so that isn't the problem I thought it would would appear to be quite congested.

Still believe that if we're going this route then a Mistral Class Ship to replace the LPD would be a more effective and cheaper solution.
