Replenishment Fleet Tanker (AOR)

Replenishment oilers deliver petroleum and munitions simultaneously to carrier battle groups using fuel hoses and helicopters. These petroleum munitions underway replenishment ships are smaller than the AOE class, but are still capable of multi-product delivery. They can carry 160,000 barrels of petroleum, 600 tons of munitions, 200 tons of dry stores and 100 tons of refrigerated stores. They also have highly automated cargo handling equipment.
