The Tollands were completed in 1944-45. They were Maritime Commission standard C2-S-AJ3 hulls armed and manned by Navy crews for landing cargo on the beach during amphibious assaults. They carried 1 LCPLs, 8 LCM(3), and 15-16 LCVP with which to transport their cargo ashore. Their forward kingpost had two 5-ton and two 10-ton booms, and the fore and aft quadrupods each had two 35-ton and two 5-ton booms. Externally they resembled the Andromedas.
The Navy was happy enough with these ships that the last was not decommissioned until 1970.
