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.

Sacagawea Norfolk
Shepard Pacific
Byrd Pacific
Peary East Coast

Brashear Pacific
Schirra East Coast

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

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.
