The Assault landing Ships were proposed to update the dock landing ships which were used during world war two. This was to increase the capability of the Royal marines. Using the design of the Us Raleigh Class, the Fearless Class assault ship was proposed these were smaller than the us ships and were ordered in 1962. Two ships were built HMS Fearless and HMS Intrepid.  They could carry 15 tanks and 27 vehicles plus 400 Royal Marines  or for a short period up to 700.  Other Assault ships included are HMS Ocean, HMS Albion and HMS Bulwark.
