U.S. Army Derrick Barges (BD) Built Since WWII

Most recent update: October 27, 2012.


Since WWII, the Navy has added 72 YDs and the Army has added at least 44 BDs.  Of the 72 YDs, 40 were BDs transferred in from the Army and some of these were built during WWII.  As a result, there is considerable overlap between the two fleets.  The top half of the table below lists the YDs and the bottom half lists the BDs.  The BD section appears to have many gaps, but it is hard to understand the Army's numbering system.  If anyone can add to the data in the table below, please e-mail your info to me at timcolton@aol.com.
