Singapore’s ST to Build LPD/LST, Landing Craft for Regional Navy
That customer could be the Thai Navy, which floated an RFP for an LPD-type ship in April 2008.
ST Eng lists their ship design as an “LST” (Landing Ship Tank) on their site, but it does not beach itself; the label LPD is more appropriate. Construction is scheduled to begin in mid 2009, and delivery is planned for in the second half of 2012. ST Engineering release.
