According to local news agency Yonhap, the LPX-II project aims to build a new versatile large-deck landing ship for short take-off and vertical landing fighter jets (F-35s).
HHI will finish the conceptual design by late 2020, with commissioning planned for the early 2030s. The vessel, displacing around 30,000 tons would be based on the existing Dokdo-class amphibious assault ship (LPX-I project) & will accommodate around 20 F-35B STOVL fighters.
