USS America (LHA-6) arrived at its new homeport of Sasebo, Japan, on Thursday, a move that puts the big-deck amphibious assault ship designed to accommodate the F-35B Lightning II Joint Strike Fighters in the Western Pacific.

America is now part of the U.S. 7th Fleet forward-deployed amphibious force, replacing big-deck amphib USS Wasp (LHD-1), which completed a move to Naval Station Norfolk last month. https://news.usni.org/2019/12/06/amphibious-assault-ship-uss-america-arrives-in-japan#more-71799
