From: Dismal Seepage Indiana
During the war, the USN made a lot of experiments with their ships and one which went into production was the venerable LST being turned into a repair ship.
The ships all served in the Pacific and were numbered ARB1 thru 12.
To create them, I simply copy/pasted the first LST class to a new blank slot under "classes" and changed the ship type to an AR..
Make sure to "SAVE" each time you make new ships and classes. Write your new numbers on a piece of paper so as not to lose them.
Mark them to not "upgrade".
I assigned mine to Pacific Fleet, and it is safe to have them arrive at San Diego, or Cristobal as they came from Evansville Indiana, or Baltimore originally.
Next, to to the SHIPS screen and use blank slots for each ship, naming them ARB-1 thru ARB- 11, (or 12)....I used empty slots 12520-12531...They will all be the same class and when you punch in that saved "class", it will auto-fill all your slots except the time they enter, the place they enter, and if you copy/paste each as I did, don't forget to manually change the ships' number at the top...1 thru 11 or 12....
Next, the commissioning dates (in order) are 18May43,22May43,5Aug43,11Apr44,23May44,24Jun44,10Mar45,3Jul45 and 23Jun45.....(The twelfth was not in service till the war was over.)
