Constantly breaking down when attempting to get underway from Diego Garcia. She was not well-regarded by those who worked on her. Once she lost the plant when outbound and almost collided with another anchored vessel.

Thanks Arjan and Steven for info!

I don't there is any plan to convert her with RORO and Liquid storage spaces like the prepo ships used for the USMC. I think she carries prepackaged support systems for the USAF in regular sized containers when on station. She is probably in Tampa for maintenance.

Hi Holger,

She is a Military Sealift Commend Airforce Container Ship and she bears her current name since 27 dec 2015.
I think she is only in drydock for major maintenance.

Regards,
Arjan.

Hi Arjan,

any information if the vessel will be converted?
She bears the colours of Military Sealift Command.

Regards
Holger

Arjan, thanks for posting, it shows the asymmetrical stern design of the B170 serie. This is very similar to the design introduced onto the Norasia Samantha and sisters delivered in the mid eighties.

My plesure Marek.
Best Regards,
Arjan.
