|81k||USS Florence Nightingale (AP-70) underway on 1 October 1942, location unknown. Although converted to an attack transport for the North African invasion, she was never redesignated as an APA. Instead, she was referred to informally as an XAP, a dual-purpose AP/APA. Unlike a full APA, she had two rather than four sets of triple Welin davits, stowing virtually all of her landing craft on deck.
