USS Feronia (ARL-45) and Chandra (ARL-46)

In the foreground commencing conversion at the Maryland Dry Dock Co., Baltimore, Md., on 30 May 1945.
They are still wearing their European Theater hull markings, "US 332" on the left and "US 350" on the right. The Liberty ship is USS Hooper Island (ARG-17). The other eight LST conversions in the image from which this was cropped are all of the AGP and ARB types. Minerva (ARL-47) probably arrived for conversion later on the same day.

USS Askari (ARL-30)

Operating in South Vietnam on 27 September 1967 as part of River Assault Flotilla ONE.
She has used her "A" frame hoist to lift a 56-foot Armored Troop Carrier (ATC) onto a pontoon for maintenance. Other riverine craft, including a monitor, await their turn. The full load displacement of an ATC was 69.2 tons and its hoisting weight was 55.8 tons, suggesting that Askari and its sisters had the improved 60-ton capacity "A" frame hoist.
