The U.S. Navy second ship of America Class amphibious assault ship USS Tripoli (LHA-7) was launched in May 01. 

The ship is being built by Huntington Ingalls Industries.

Prior to her launching, she was trasferred from land to the company’s floating dry dock in Pascagoula, Mississippi.

USS Tripoli (LHA-7) will be able to accommodate F-35Bs and MV-22B Osprey tiltrotor aircraft.

She is planned to be christened later this year and to be delivered late 2018.
