Description:
USNS Rappahannock (T-AO-204) is a underway replenishment oiler operated by the Military Sealift Command to support ships of the United States Navy.

Construction and delivery

Rappahannock, the eighteenth ship and final ship of the Henry J. Kaiser class and the second U.S. Navy ship named for the Rappahannock River in Virginia, was laid down at Avondale Shipyard, Inc., at New Orleans, Louisiana on 29 March 1992 and launched on 14 January 1995. She was one of only three of the eighteen Henry J. Kaiser-class ships — the other two being USNS Patuxent and USNS Laramie — to be built with a double bottom in order to meet the requirements of the Oil Pollution Act of 1990. Hull separation is at the sides and on the bottom, reducing her liquid cargo capacity by about 21,000 barrels (2,500 m³) from that of the 15 ships of her class without a double bottom.

Rappahannock entered non-commissioned U.S. Navy service under the control of Military Sealift Command with a primarily civilian crew on 7 November 1995 with Captain Charles L. Becker as the commanding officer.

Service history

Rappahannock serves in the United States Pacific Fleet.
