NZ Issues Tender for Fleet Tanker

WELLINGTON — New Zealand's Ministry of Defence has issued a request for tender for a ship to replace the existing fleet tanker HMNZS Endeavour, commissioned in April 1988.

The tender specifies a range of 6,450 nautical miles at 16 knots (Endeavour has a range of 10,000 nautical miles and can attain 14 knots) and requires the new ship to spend up to 160 days at sea each year and 60 days alongside.

It's not ours.

It's ours in the sense that we'll have an exclusive contract for its use until both of our own AORs arrive.
