Military Sealift Command USNS MSC MSTS

Recommended Posts

There are some of these type patches in different topics throughout the USN patch pages so I thought I would start a specific topic just for them. I also though I would post the EX-USN ships patches I had of the same named ships.

Please enjoy.

First up the Military Sealift Command patch itself one Japanese made and one US made

USS Concord (AFS-5), was a Mars-class combat stores ship, in service with the United States Navy from 1968 to 1992. Concord became the first of five ships of its class to be transferred to Military Sealift Command. The transfer was completed in October 1992 and she was redesignated USNS Concord (T-AFS-5). Concord was stricken in August 2009 and sunk as a target in 2012.
