Gasoline Tankers (AOG)

Most recent update: April 2, 2015.


Many auxiliaries were created by converting existing ships; others were built new but starting with an existing design; the balance were both designed and built for their purpose.  In this table, the grey cells identify the second and third categories - the ships that were purpose-built.  There are some gaps in the data, particularly for the conversions: if anyone has any corrections or additions to offer, please send them to me at timcolton@aol.com
