US strengthens Asia-Pacific defences by deploying floating base for helicopters and hovercraft to Okinawa

The United States navy is strengthening its defences in the Asia-Pacific amid ongoing tensions with China by deploying its newest giant landing dock to Okinawa.

The USS Miguel Keith, an expeditionary staging base designed to transport large quantities of equipment and serve as a floating base for helicopters and hovercraft, was deployed to the White Beach naval base on the Japanese island on Friday, the US Navy said in a statement.

It will join the Seventh Fleet’s Expeditionary Strike Group and Marine Expeditionary Force, the statement added.
