A General Dynamics business christened and launched the fourth U.S. Navy John Lewis-class fleet replenishment oiler during a ceremony in San Diego.
The vessel is named after the 64th U.S. attorney general who championed African-American civil rights and countered organized crime.
John Lewis-class oilers are designed to travel at a speed of up to 20 knots and transport as much as 157,000 barrels of oil.
General Dynamics delivered the first two John Lewis-class ships to the Navy – USNS John Lewis and USNS Harvey Milk – and is building three more vessels.
In January, NASSCO held a christening ceremony for the third John Lewis-class fleet oiler, USNS Earl Warren.
