US Sacramento class

Support Ship


Support Ship Sacramento class

The fast combat support ships (AOE) Sacramento class combine the capabilities of a fleet oiler (AO), ammunition ship (AE) and refrigerated stores ship (AF) in a single unit that perform the functions of three vessels while simultaneously integrating into a carrier battlegroup.
An unnamed AOE-5 was cancelled in 1968 and a new class ( Wichita ) introduced. The last one of the four Sacramento built was retired in 2005 and replaced by the Supply class
