  7. PROGRAM OVERVIEW SYSTEM DESCRIPTION LHD 1 Class Amphibious Assault Ship (Multi-Purpose) PURPOSE / MISSION “Big Deck” element of a three-ship Expeditionary Strike Group (ESG), Provides sustainable, forcible entry capability • PRIMARY: Embark, deploy and land elements of a Marine Landing Force in an assault by helicopters, landing craft, amphibious vehicles and combinations of these methods • SECONDARY / CONVERTIBLE: Sea control and power projection DESCRIPTION Eight-ship program. LHDs 1 through 7 are steam-powered.
