Navy’s civilian-run ships playing bigger supply role amid Russia tensions


Recommended Posts

NAPLES, Italy — The Navy’s fleet of mostly civilian-crewed support ships is building up its presence off Europe and Africa, as insurgent activity and potential threats to allies by Russia stretch the military’s supply lines.

The Military Sealift Command is adding ships within the 6th Fleet theater, which spans the eastern Atlantic Ocean from the Arctic to Antarctica. The theater includes the Mediterranean Sea, a critical point for operations against adversaries in Africa and the Middle East, and the Black Sea, an area of tensions since Russia annexed Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula in 2014. https://www.stripes.com/news/navy-s-civilian-run-ships-playing-bigger-supply-role-amid-russia-tensions-1.513934
