Fleet Ordnance and Dry Cargo (PM6)

Our Fleet Ordnance and Dry Cargo (PM6) program has fourteen Dry Cargo/Ammunition ships and two Fast Combat Support ships. Dry Cargo and Ammunition ships, or T-AKEs, were designed to replenish dry and refrigerated stores as well as ordnance. They have replaced combat stores ships and ammunition ships incorporating the capabilities of both platforms into one hull. These multi-product ships increase the delivery capability to provide food, fuel, spare parts, ammunition and potable water to the U.S. Navy and our allies. Fast Combat Support Ships or T-AOEs provide parts, supplies and fuel at sea.
