Jump to: navigation, search

The Henry J. Kaiser-class Fleet Oilers are a class of eighteen fleet replenishment oilers which began construction in August 1984. The class comprises eighteen oilers which are operated by Military Sealift Command to provide underway replenishment of fuel to United States Navy combat ships and jet fuel for aircraft aboard aircraft carriers at sea and one built for the Chilean Navy in the mid-2000s. In the mid-1990s, the United States offered Canada the option of license building the Henry J. Kaiser-class to replace the aging Provider and Protecteur-class replenishment vessels in the CF Maritime Command.
