Hi All

There's plenty of information out there about LSTs and those that ended up in Vietnam.

I'm struggling to find what modifications were made to LSTs that served in Vietnam, however.

Any websites or books I could go to?

Obviously I'm thinking of the AFV Club LST as a future project

That's what I'd love to do....and some PBRs at the side of it.....

I know the AFV Club kit isn't quite right for one of the converted ones, but a good starting point.

Looks like there are good resources out there
