HMAS Supply (II) badge

NUSHIP Supply (II) is the lead ship of two Supply class Auxiliary Oiler Replenishment (AOR) ships currently being built for the Royal Australian Navy by Spanish shipbuilder, Navantia. The Australian Supply class ships are based on the Spanish Navy's Cantabria class design.

The ships are intended to carry fuel, dry cargo, water, food, ammunition, equipment and spare parts to provide operational support for the deployed naval or combat forces operating far from the port on the high seas for longer periods.

In addition to replenishment, the vessels can be used to combat against environmental pollution at sea, provide logistics support for the armed forces, and to support humanitarian and disaster relief (HADR) operations following a natural disaster.

NUSHIP Supply was laid down on 18 November 2017 and then launched at the Navantia Shipyards in Ferrol, Spain on 24 November 2018.

NUSHIP Supply is the second Royal Australian Navy ship to bear the name after the Tide Class Fleet Tanker, HMAS Supply (I).

HMAS Supply (II) is planned to enter service with the Royal Australian Navy fleet in 2020.
