The Guizhou-class amphibious transport dock is designed to land forces on hostile shores, and they are the largest vessels of this type in service anywhere in the world. Originally designed by Tian Xia, it has found widespread use in the Canissian Royal Navy, the Shinra Republic Navy, and the Wilkonian Imperial Navy; two modified examples also serve with the Langley Navy, the only known non-MESS operator of the class.

The Guizhous are designed to be the most survivable amphibious ships ever put to sea. The design incorporates state-of-the-art self-defense capabilities; and includes facilities for Command and Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence (C4I); and reduced radar cross-section signature technologies. Reduced operational costs and an improved capability to incorporate technological advances over its 40-year service life are also essential design objectives. The Advanced Enclosed Mast/Sensors, which enclose the ship's radars and communications antennas, characterize the ship's distinctive profile.
