RFA Fort Victoria (A387)

Fort Victoria is an Auxiliary Oiler Replenishment (AOR) ship, offering the capability of both stores ship and fleet tanker.


Commanded by Captain C. G. Clarke, RFA Fort Victoria was originally designed to support frigates on anti-submarine warfare patrols

She provides vital support to the wider fleet by acting as a stores ship and a fleet tanker. Fort Victoria is fitted with four central replenishment rigs, so she can replenish two warships simultaneously with fuel and stores. What’s more, she has another refuelling rig at her rear – though this isn’t the fastest way to refuel and restock, it is much safer in bad weather.

She also has a large flight-deck, hangar and maintenance facilities for helicopters.
