Kilauea-class Ammunition Ship

From Canadian Power Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The Kilauea-class ammunition ship is a class of eight United States Navy cargo vessels designed for underway replenishment of naval warships. The ships were constructed 1968–72 and were initially commissioned naval ships, carrying a crew of naval personnel. At various dates 1980–96 these ships were decommissioned and transferred to the Military Sealift Command for civilian operation. They were eventually all replaced by the Lewis and Clark-class dry cargo ships. The lead ship of the class, Kilauea, was commissioned on August 10th 1968, and the last, the Kiska, on December 16th 1972.
