Replenishment oiler

A replenishment oiler or replenishment tanker is a naval auxiliary ship with fuel tanks and dry cargo holds which can supply both fuel and dry stores during underway replenishment at sea. Many countries have used replenishment oilers; the United States Navy's hull classification symbol for this type of ship was AOR. Replenishment oilers are slower and carry fewer dry stores than the U. S. Navy's modern fast combat support ships, which carry the classification AOE; the development of the "oiler" paralleled the change from coal- to oil-fired boilers in warships. Prior to the adoption of oil fired machinery, navies could extend the range of their ships either by maintaining coaling stations or for warships to raft together with colliers and for coal to be manhandled aboard. Though arguments related to fuel security were made against such a change, the ease with which liquid fuel could be transferred led in part to its adoption by navies worldwide. One of the first generation of "blue-water" navy oiler support vessels was the British RFA Kharki, active 1911 in the run-up to the First World War.

Such vessels heralded the transition from coal to oil as the fuel of warships and removed the need to rely on, operate within range of "coaling stations". During the Second World War, the United States Navy's enlarged fleets those in the Pacific Theater, required massive quantities of black oil, diesel oil and other fuels and lubricants to support American land and air operations against remote dispersed Japanese forces; those supply demands resulted in U. S. Navy personnel refining many established practices for oilers and creating new procedures for replenishing warships while underway and for transporting combustible materials with increased effectiveness through hostile waters and over vast ocean distances. Modern examples of the fast combat support ship include the large British Fort class, displacing 31,066 long tons and measuring 669 feet in length. For smaller navies, such as the Royal New Zealand Navy, replenishment oilers are one of the largest ships in the navy; such ships are designed to carry large amounts of fuel and dry stores for the support of naval operations far away from port.

Replenishment oilers are equipped with more extensive medical and dental facilities than smaller ships can provide. Such ships are equipped with multiple refueling gantries to refuel and resupply multiple ships at a time; the process of refueling and supplying ships at sea is called underway replenishment. Furthermore, such ships are designed with helicopter decks and hangars; this allows the operation of rotary-wing aircraft. This process is called vertical replenishment. Furthermore, such ships, when operating in concert with surface groups, can act as the aviation maintenance platform where helicopters receive more extensive maintenance than can be provided by the smaller hangars of the escorting ships, their size, additional facilities, ability to support the operation of other vessels, means that replenishment oilers have been used as command ships, with some ships, such as the French Durance-class, this capability being built into the vessels from the start. Because the replenishment oiler is not a combat unit, but rather a support vessel, such ships are lightly armed with self-defense systems, small arms, machine guns and/or light automatic cannons.

They may carry man-portable air-defense systems for additional air defense capability. Replenishment oilers include: In the United States Navy, an Oiler is a Combat Logistics ship that replenishes other ships with fuel and in some cases food, mail and other necessities while at sea, in a process called Underway Replenishment or UNREP. Up through the Second World War Navy oilers used commercial tanker hulls, with the addition of UNREP gear, defensive guns, military electronic and damage-control equipment, they were classified as Fleet Oilers in the 20th Century. Since the 1960s the classification Transport Oiler has applied to tankers which ship petroleum products to depots around the world, but do not engage in UNREP; the first fleet oilers were identified by the hull designation AO, still in use. Large, fast multifunction oilers which provide ammunition and dry stores are identified as Fast Combat Support Ships, mid-size ones Replenishment Oilers; the AOR designation is no longer in use. All of these oilers provide the combined services of the AO, AE, AFS and AK.

The style "USNS" and prefix "T" identify a ship as being operated by a civilian crew under the Military Sealift Command. Henry J. Kaiser-class John Lewis-class Supply-class DANFS USS KALAMAZOO website US Naval Vessel Register KMS Dithmarschen Spanish Navy Patino Class AOR HMAS Success, AOR-304
