    There are a couple of reasons why I believe that there are no VLS associated with Amphibious assault vessels. First is that CIWS and Rolling missiles are for self protection in the event of leakers. MR SAM that typically come with VLS are for local air defense. It is not the function of Amphibious assault ships to provide area air defense - it is the job of support vessels. The second reason is MR SAM requires pairing to the appropriate sensor due to range and may present interference to air traffic control systems and sensors LACM is even further away in the overall functional role division. Whether there are precedents is irrelevant.

    In my view it would be silly to place VLS onto the type 075 as it would occupy valuable real estate. One would argue what on earth is China building all the Type 055 and 052s for if the Type 075 has to do their job..

    So bottom line is that using a F-35B type VTOL to beat up on "2nd or 3rd tier military" is quite an expansive adventure to say the least. Throwing missiles or bombing land targets doesn't need to be using VTOL type jets, it can be done by drones and cruise missiles without risking the pilot's life and more cost effective.

    Hyuga and Izumo classes both have VLS. Just because some nations dont do a thing, doesnt mean others dont either. From what ive been seeing, the Chinese seem to be putting heavier defenses on thier capitol ships than most western nations seem to have.

    Only Hyuga class has 16 cell VLS. And both classes are not LHD.
