Transport Ship
A troopship (also troop ship or troop transport or trooper) is a ship used to carry soldiers, either in peacetime or wartime. Operationally, standard troopships – often drafted from commercial shipping fleets – cannot land troops directly on shore, typically loading and unloading at a seaport or onto smaller vessels, either tenders or barges. Attack transports, a variant of ocean-going troopship adapted to transporting invasion forces ashore, carry their own fleet of landing craft. Landing ships beach themselves and bring their troops directly ashore.Contents1 History 2 World War II2.1 Designation3 Post-World War II 4 Some notable troopships 5 References5.1 Bibliography 5.2 Notes6 External linksHistory[edit] Ships to transport troops were already used in Antiquity
