They look like regular LST's. The hull numbers are NOT visible so it can't be certain. But, unlike the rest of the ARL conversions (which had noticeably different configurations than these units), two LST units were converted in Australia and reclassified as ARL after the fact; USS REMUS (ARL-40) and USS ACHILLES (ARL-41). There have not been any photos of these two as ARL's surface so far. And unlike other "standard" conversions, they were stricken and turned over to the Nationalist Chinese Navy in 1946, never returning stateside.
