|101k||PCU Monticello (LSD-35) underway off her builder's yard, 13 March 1957, soon after completion. Compared to wartime LSDs, she is more heavily armed with eight twin 3"/50 guns as well as a pair of twin 20mms in the bows and another atop the bridge. The battery was cut to six twin 3"/50 mounts during the 1960s and to only three in the 1970s (forward of the bridge, one abaft the bridge).
