Tankers Built in U.S. During World War II

The T1 type were named after major oil fields in the United States. The T2 types were named after monuments, national parks, forts, battles, historic settlements, trails, lakes, swamps. Later T3 type were built for private companies and named by the company. Many tankers were built for or taken over by the U.S. Navy and named after Native American names of rivers and lakes. The Navy AO designation indicates Fleet Oilers.

Tankers were developed around the turn of the century to carry liquid cargo: gasoline, oil, or molasses. During World War II, American tankers made 6,500 voyages to carry 65 million tons of oil and gasoline from the U.S. and the Caribbean to the war zones and to our Allies. They supplied 80% of the fuel used by bombers, tanks, jeeps and ships during the War.

T2-SE-A1 was the workhorse of the tanker fleet (481 built):

T3-S2-A1 (All became Fleet Oilers and several were converted to Escort Carriers CVE):


T3-M-AZ1 One Motor tanker, Brandywine, was built

A typical tanker crew included 42 to 45 mariners and 17 Navy Armed Guard. The same ship as a Navy Fleet Oiler carried a crew of 250 to 325.

Skeleton deck carrying planes on tankerIn 1943, desperate for cargo capacity, "skeleton decks" about 7 or 8 feet above the deck (to keep the planes out of the waves and to make lashing simpler) were attached to many tankers to carry planes and PT boats.

[Skeleton deck carrying planes on tanker, Mast Magazine, April 1944]

Immediately after Pearl Harbor, when the U.S. declared war on Germany and Japan, the U-Boats arrived on our Atlantic Seaboard. They concentrated on the tanker fleet, knowing how essential fuel was to the war effort. Americans faced rationing of gasoline for their cars and heating oil for their homes, to spare fuel for the war.
