Topic review - USMC Commandant wants "light amphibious warship" class

I am not quite sure why General Berger decided to make such a statement and then declined to say what will be the operational role and size of these vessels? Exactly how these smaller ships will deter the PLAN is also a bit of a mystery, except that he seems to want to keep the bigger ships as well!

Considering the USN is finding it hard to get new ships built, this really does not seem very helpful.

Top Marine General Wants a New Class of 'Light' Amphibious Warship
13 Feb 2020
Military.com | By Gina Harkins
The sea services have laid out potential requirements for a "light" amphibious ship, the top Marine general said this week, raising the possibility that the Navy's upcoming force-structure assessment will include new types of vessels.
The Navy and Marine Corps will still rely on big-deck amphibious assault ships, Commandant Gen. David Berger told shipbuilders and members of Congress at a Tuesday event hosted by the Amphibious Warship Industrial Base Coalition. But they're also going to need something new over the next decade, he added.
"We need a light amphibious warship -- a lot of them -- that we don't have today," Berger said.
The commandant declined to answer questions about how many Marines, aircraft and weapons those ships could carry, citing the yet-to-be-finalized force-structure assessment that will lay out the number and types of platforms the Navy will need in the next decade.
(...SNIPPED)
