Description

Bluejacket T-2 Tanker

The T-2 tanker was a type of commercially built oil tanker used by the United States during World War II. These tankers were named after the T2 hull design, which was standardized and mass-produced to meet the demand for transporting oil and fuel to support the war effort.

The T-2 tankers were built between 1940 and 1945 and played a crucial role in supplying fuel to Allied forces in both the Atlantic and Pacific theaters of the war. These tankers were known for their efficiency, speed, and large carrying capacity, allowing them to transport large quantities of oil across the ocean quickly and safely.

After the war, many T-2 tankers were converted for commercial use and continued to be used in the oil industry for many years. Some were also used by the U.S. Navy as fleet oilers and replenishment ships.

The T-2 tanker design proved to be a durable and versatile vessel that served a vital role during World War II and beyond. Its legacy lives on in the modern oil tanker industry, as the T-2 design set the standard for efficient and reliable oil transportation at sea.

The Bluejacket T-2 Tanker kit can be built to either wartime or peacetime configurations with plans and details for many shipping companies provided.
