Class Notes:
[SCB 713.yr, FY 1965-67] First authorized Sep 1964 under FY 1965, cancelled 25 May 1965. Then requested in FY 1966 [pamphlet 15 Jun 1965] and FY 1967 [pamphlet 15 Jun 1966]. [From the FY 1967 pamphlet] "This limited conversion (Project No. 713.67) is part of the continued modernization of the MSTS nucleus fleet. It consists of modifying an existing T-2 Tanker by fitting in a new mid-ship section ... to increase petroleum cargo capacity by 60,000 barrels to a total of 209,000 barrels. The MSTS tanker is a point-to-point ship engaged in a pipeline type of operation." The MSTS T2s active when the proposal was first made in 1964 were all but one (AO 74) of the T-AO 49 class and six survivors of the T-AO 111 class, the photo in the official pamphlet is of a T-AO 49 class ship.
