The Landing Ship Tank, known as the 'LST' served as the backbone of Allied landings in the Pacific and Italy throughout early 1944. The first LST was completed in December of 1942, and these vessels became critical ships in warfare over the next year. They could obtain a remarkable amount of damage and still survive.
