A Naval Special Warfare combatant craft assault returns to amphibious transport dock ship USS John P. Murtha (LPD 26), which transited through the Bering Sea, during Operation POLAR DAGGER, Aug. 28, 2023. Amphibious transport dock ships like John P. Murtha have many unique capabilities that make them ideal platforms to support special operations forces, such as the ability to embark helicopters from the joint force, launch and recover Naval Special Warfare combatant craft, and maintain all-domain awareness through advanced sensors. Operations NOBLE DEFENDER and POLAR DAGGER sharpen joint special operations integration and provides the forces the opportunity to test new capabilities and advance response options in defense of the U.S. homeland.
