USS Alan Shepard

Non perchè l’abbia scelto per il mio Avatar ma… era ora!:

“USS Shepard: The US Navy will name its new combat ship the USS Alan Shepard in honor of America’s first man in space, the New Hampshire Congressional delegation announced on Friday. The 1000-ft. support vessel will be built in California by the National Steel and Shipbuilding Company for delivery to the Navy’s fleet by March 2007. The USS Shepard’s primary mission will be to deliver supplies, transfer cargo and supply logistic help to Navy ships within a single carrier strike group. Part of the T-AKE Class of auxiliary support ships, the Shepard will span 689 feet long and clock a top speed of 20 knots.”
