preloaded vehicles, ammunition, fuel, and all sorts of supplies.  LSTs  built  after  the  war  were  of  the  same general design but were larger and faster. They had certain added features that enabled them to carry out their missions more effectively than those built before the war. Bow doors and a bow ramp on LSTs of the World War II era gave access to a huge hold called the tank deck. Another ramp from the main deck to  the  tank deck enabled  vehicles  to  reach  the  main  deck  under their  own  power.  One  of  the  added  features  in  the postwar design is a  turntable  in  the  forward  part  of the tank deck. The turntable allows vehicles to  turn without a great deal of maneuvering. Another feature is  booms  and  winches  mounted  on  the  main  deck forward of the deckhouse to aid cargo handling. 134.191 Figure 19-16.-Tank landing ship USS Newport (LST-1179). 134.195 Figure 19-17.-USS Mount Whitney (LCC-20). 19-16
