    One Supply class was retired beginning in 2015 the T-AOE 10 Bridge was homeported to Bremerton remains three on four :
    http://www.msc.navy.mil/inventory/inventory.asp?var=PM1
    Planned one other retired this year two remains for 2020's.
    Really damage ! only 20 years, big, polyvalent and fast, very useful.

    MSC : 32 big + 40000 t combat replenisment ships.
    Very few MSC ships have a specific homeport in general deployed by area.

    14 Lewis and Clarck class, Dry Cargo / Ammunition Ships, AKE
    The primary mission of Dry Cargo / Ammunition Ships is the delivery of supplies to Navy ships. They are equipped to transfer cargo such as ammunition, food, limited quantities of fuel, repair parts, ship store items, and expandable supplies.
    Lewis and Clark East Coast
    Sacagawea Norfolk
    Shepard Pacific
    Byrd Pacific
    Peary East Coast
    Earhart Pacific
    Brashear Pacific
    Schirra East Coast
    Perry West Coast
    Drew Pacific
    Chambers Pacific
    McLean East Coast
    Evers Pacific
    Chavez ?

    3 Supply Class, Fast Combat Support Ships, AOE
    The Fast Combat Support Ships are the Navy's largest combat logistics ships. They are designed as oiler, ammunition and supply ship and their main task is to operate as part of a carrier battle group (CVBG) providing goods to the battle group units.

    Supply Earle, NJ
    Rainier Bremerton
    Arctic Earle, NJ

    15 Kaiser Class, Fleet oilers, AO
    Fleet oilers operate as a unit of an underway replenishment group, replenishing petroleum products and ordnance to the fleet at sea during underway replenishments (UNREPS). The oilers transport bulk petroleum and lubricants from depots to the ships of the battle group. The ships also transport and deliver limited Fleet Freight, mail and personnel to combatants and support units underway.
    Kaiser Pacific
    Humphreys Atlantic
    Lenthall Atlantic
    Diehl Pacific
    Ericsson Pacific
    Leroy Grumman Atlantic
    Kanawha Atlantic
    Pecos Pacific
    Big Horn Atlantic
    Tippecanoe Pacific
    Guadalupe Pacific
    Patuxent Atlantic
    Yukon San Diego
    Laramie Pacific
    Rappahannock Pacific

    A Supply is sufficient to support a CSG in more fast 25 kn otherwise mainly in war time a Lewis and Clark and a Kaiser are needed.

    These are VERY nice vessels. Well built and modern. They will be a great upgrade (IMHO) for the RN.
