A heavy lift Norwegian ship...

Saw this ship the other day and then saw it two days later with a load of two ships/boats (?) aboard. Cannot identify what they are, but they are US Navy.

I don't see any mine sweeper gear. Maybe PG's. Patrol gunboats from the look of all the deck guns and torpedo tubes. Just my humble opinon. Larry
