    Ingalls Shipbuilding announced Friday it has received the initial $200 million procurement contract toward construction of LPD 28 -- the U.S. Navy's 12th amphibious transport dock of the San Antonio class. The total construction contract will be announced at a later date.

    The funds will be used to purchase long-lead-time material and major equipment, including main engines, diesel generators, deck equipment, shafting, propellers, valves and other long-lead systems.

    Ingalls' 10th San Antonio-class LPD, John P. Murtha (LPD 26), was the most complete and lowest-cost LPD when launched, with many key systems finished months ahead of the shipyard's historic best in the program.
