Iowa Class Battleships Prepare for War

The phrase "underway replenishment" or "unrep" may not mean a lot to some people. However, to the United States Navy it is the keystone to strategic readiness for its fleets around the world. The first significant replenishment at sea occurred in 1899 when two ships, the U.S.S. Massachusetts and the U.S.S. Marcellas, transferred coal to one another. Since then, many methods have been tried and abandoned. Today, the U.S. Navy is able to re-supply fuel for ships as well as aircrafts. The advent of the helicopter allows for the rapid transfer of other commodities such as ammunition and cargo.

U.S.N. - World Naval Supremacy

During W.W. II, many regarded the act of underway replenishment as a secret weapon. No other navy in the world could accomplish this feat. Even today there are several countries with blue water navies that cannot perform underway replenishment. The Sacramento class ships were designed specifically for the purpose of re-supplying an entire battle group with fuel, weapons, and food. This procedure allows combat ships to stay on station for weeks on end and not have to return to port for vital supplies.

Cruise Missiles, Fuel Oil and Victory

During the Gulf War, the U.S.S. Sacramento, her motto "Ready for service", re-supplied many different classes of ships and kept the fleet primed for any given situation. Here we see the U.S.S. Wisconsin BB64 and the U.S.S. Missouri BB63 ( 'Mighty Mo') being provided with fuel and stores from the U.S.S. Sacramento AOE1 as they moved through the Arabian Gulf.

This simultaneous refueling of two dreadnoughts may never be accomplished again due to the retirement of the Iowa class battleships.
