A system was developed by NCEL to provide a simple, expedient connection between the new 20-knot, Class 1179 LST and a causeway. The developed system, designated the Abutment Connection System, is compatible with all classes of LST and installation is within the present operational capability of the Amphibious Construction Battalions. Operational testing with the 20-knot, Class 1179 LST is recommended. Author
