High-speed transports were converted destroyers and destroyer escorts used in US Navy amphibious operations in World War II and afterward. They received the US Hull classification symbol APD; "AP" for transport and "D" for destroyer.

APDs were intended to deliver small units such as Marine Raiders, Underwater Demolition Teams, and United States Army Rangers onto hostile shores. An APD could carry up to 200 troops - a company-size unit, and approximately 40 tons of cargo. It could also provide gunfire support if needed. USS Manley was officially designated the Navy's first high-speed transport on 2 August 1940 when she became APD-1.

Great detail, but quite fragile
First off these are once again super great looking, detailed units! They look so much better than the OOB liberty ships, I just can't wait to get them painted and on my board! The one drawback I see, is the masts are quite fragile. I broke a number of mine just trying to drill holes in the hulls to magnetize them (yeah this is my own fault but never had this issue before with any other 3d printed pieces). I'm def. going to have to play gently with them, as I'm sure it wouldn't take much of a drop to break more of them off during gameplay.
