"Transport (AP) - Converted from "AN""
Preliminary design plan prepared during examination of proposals to alter ships under construction.
This plan, dated 7 January 1943, is for a 8575-ton, 440-foot long personnel and vehicle transport (AP, later redesignated LSV) converted from a net layer (see Photo # s-511-24). This is probably the preliminary design for what became the Osage (LSV-3) class.
Scale of the original drawings is 1/32" = 1'.
The original plan is in the 1939-1944 "Spring Styles Book" held by the Naval Historical Center.
