Amphibious Assault Ships are designed to maintain what the Marine Corps calls "tactical integrity"  - getting a balanced force to the same place at the same time.

The Iwo Jima Class (LPH) of Amphibious Assault Ships were designed to transport fully-equipped Marines into combat areas and land them by helicopter at designated inland points. The ships were capable of supporting a 1700 person Marine Battalion Landing Team, its armament, vehicles, equipment and a reinforced squadron of transport helicopters and various support personnel. The ships also supported mine sweeping operations and provided humanitarian assistance and evacuations of citizens caught in civil-conflict overseas.
