The fourth Pensacola was laid down 15 March 1969 by the General Dynamies Corp., Quiney, Mass.; launched 11 July 1970; sponsored by Mrs. Bernard M. Strean; and is scheduled to commission early in 1971.

As the third of a new class of doek landing ships, she is designed to replace earlier LSD's that cannot meet modern speed requirements.
