General Dynamics Nassco will receive slightly more than $13 million for work on the amphibious assault ship USS Peleliu, the Pentagon announced recently.

The $13.07 million deal covers the planning and execution of depot-level maintenance, alterations and modifications.

The San Diego-based Peleliu has a large flat deck and resembles an aircraft carrier. It’s capable of carrying 1,900 U.S. Marines, their landing craft, helicopters and Harrier jets.
