Class Notes:
FY 1944 (ARL 10-39), all as LSTs. All were built under LST contracts and reclassified and fitted as ARL's before entering service.

The Navy tended to list ARL 1-39 as a single class, but beginning with ARL-10 the design was modified to include "elimination of the 3"/50 DP gun, retention of the bow doors and operating mechanism, and the provision of facilities to embark and repair LVTs." Forward, the after kingpost and the front end of the deckhouse were moved forward, increasing the space available for repair shops, and both kingposts were raised in height. Aft, the 3"/50 gun was deleted and the 40mm quadruple mount was moved to a raised platform on the extreme stern, under which the usual LST stern anchor was restored. The ARL-1 class units, less the two British units, received the same armament modification at or soon after the end of the war. Similar design changes were made in the last five units of the PORTUNUS (AGP-4) class.

On 11 Jun 43, as part of a major review of auxiliary ship requirements, the Auxiliary Vessels Board stated that, with the great numbers of ships of all types in the various and extended operating areas, it considered that additional repair ships were essential at the earliest practicable date, and that in planning an auxiliary vessel conversion program for 1944 and 1945 the conversion of LSTs and EC2 ships to repair ships was the most expeditious and economical method of meeting maintenance needs. It noted that these converted ships could relieve to a great extent the need for installation of shore-based repair facilities in the forward operating areas. As part of this effort, it recommended that a program of six LST conversions to ARLs be authorized, three in 1944 and three in 1945. The three ships for 1945 were ARL 10-12.

On 11 Mar 44 CNO, as part of a large follow-on landing craft program, directed BuShips to proceed with the construction of 90 LST's, 105 LSM's, 90 LCIL's, and 105 LCT(6)'s. Under auxiliary tonnage BuShips was to proceed with the construction of 12 ARL's and 12 APL's. SecNav approved this action on 13 Mar 44. The auxiliaries were ARL 13-24 and APL 32-43.

On 2 May 44 the Auxiliary Vessels Board, considering an additional Landing Craft program authorized for 1945, took note of the shortage of ARLs and accompanying non-self-propelled APLs (barracks barges) for servicing landing craft. The Board recommended that 15 ARLs (LST type) and 15 APLs be constructed for completion during the last three quarters of 1945. These ships were ARL 25-39 and APL 44-58.

CominCh later approved the conversion of two LST's then in the Southwest Pacific to ARL's, the work to be performed by forces in the operating area. On 1 Aug 44 CNO designated these ARL 40-41 and requested that in compensation two of the ships scheduled to become ARL 25-39 be completed as LST's. ARL 25 and 34 were selected to complete as LST-856 and LST-1151 respectively.

Many of the ships of the ARL 10-39 group were converted to ARL's at Bethlehem-Key Highway, Baltimore, Md., while 5 other yards on the Atlantic or Gulf Coasts converted between 1 and 4 ships each. Gibbs and Cox was the design agent for all LST conversions. The ARL-10 class retained operational bow doors and was given facilities and materials for embarking and repairing LVTs.

On 30 Apr 45 CNO directed that six LST's then returning from Europe be converted to ARL's. The ships had departed Plymouth, England, on 16 Apr 45 and arrived at Norfolk on 5 May 45. They were decommissioned at Port Covington, Baltimore, Md. between 16 and 29 May 1945. Their ARL hull numbers (ARL 42-47) and names were approved on 28 May 45. Although, unlike the rest of the ARL-10 class, the ships were not new, they were to be converted "in accordance with the plans for the ARL 10-39 class." All six conversions were cancelled on 27 Aug 45 and their reclassifications to ARL and their ARL names were cancelled on 12 Sep 45. The ships, now again designated LST's, were inspected at their conversion yards in October 1945 and, because the partially converted ships were usable as neither LSTs nor ARLs, the inspection board recommended they be stricken and scrapped. They were towed to the James River for layup and disposal between 29 Dec 45 and 13 Jan 46.
