The Expeditionary Fast Transport (EPF) is a United States Navy-led shipbuilding program to provide a platform intended to support users in the Department of the Navy and Department of the Army. The Expeditionary Fast Transport (EPF) program is a cooperative effort for a high-speed, shallow draft vessel intended for rapid intratheater transport of medium-sized cargo payloads. The EPF will reach speeds of 35–45 knots (65–83 km/h; 40–52 mph) and will allow for the rapid transit and deployment of conventional or special forces as well as equipment and supplies. The class was previously designated as Joint High Speed Vessel (JHSV), but was changed to (EPF) in September 2015.
