USS Vermillion could be referring to a number of different ships in the US Navy. All of these vessels are named for a bay located in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Louisiana, southeast of Vermilion Parish and southwest of Iberia Parish.
Confusion is caused by the fact that "Vermillion" is frequently spelled "Vermilion" with only one "L".
- Vermillion (ACV-52/CVE-52) - as a Prince William-class auxiliary aircraft carrier assigned to Great Britain on 23 June 1943. In 1944 commissioned in the Royal Navy as HMS Smiter (D55).
- Vermilion (AKA-107) (with one "L") - an attack transport, built in 1944 and served until 1971.
- Vermillion Bay (CVE-108) - a Commencement Bay-class escort carrier was renamed Kula Gulf on 6 November 1943, prior to the laying of her keel.
