FUTURE USNS BRUNSWICK (JHSV 6) LAUNCHED
Tuesday, May 19, 2015

MOBILE, Ala. - The United States Navy's newest Joint High Speed Vessel (JHSV 6), the future USNS Brunswick, was launched from the Austal USA shipyard on May 19, 2015.

JHSV 6 is designed for the fast intra-theater transportation of troops, military vehicles and equipment. Capable of transporting 600 short tons 1,200 nautical miles at an average speed of 35 knots, the ship will provide U.S. forces with added mobility and flexibility. The JHSV design includes a flight deck for helicopter operations and an off-load ramp that allows for quick vehicular access to and from the ship as well as access to austere piers and quay walls. The vessel will operate in support of a wide range of operations including maneuver and sustainment, relief operations, flexible logistics support, or as the key enabler for rapid transport.

Since the start of 2015, the Navy has marked major milestones for both USNS Trenton (JHSV 5) and Brunswick. Trenton was christened in January and delivered to the Navy in April. Brunswick had her keel authenticated less than six months ago, was christened less than a week ago and is preparing for delivery before the end of the calendar year.

Brunswick will be owned and operated by the Navy's Military Sealift Command (MSC) and will be manned by a crew of 22 civil service mariners.
