Navy Accepts Delivery of USNS Millinocket

MOBILE, Ala. (NNS) -- The Navy accepted delivery of the third joint high speed vessel, USNS Millinocket (JHSV 3), from Austal USA in Mobile, Ala., March 21.

Delivery marks the official transfer of the vessel from the shipbuilder to the Navy and is a major milestone in the ship's transition to operational status.

"Today, the Navy received a tremendous resource," said Strategic and Theater Sealift program manager Capt. Henry Stevens, "Millinocket's speed, agility and cargo capabilities will be an asset to operations around the world."

Millinocket, the third ship of the JHSV class is commercially designed, with modifications made to suit military needs. The ship will transport troops, equipment, and supplies to littoral offload points over operational distances. She is designed to transport 600 short tons of military cargo 1,200 nautical miles at an average speed of 35 knots.
