ATS-1 Edenton Class Rescue/Salvage Ship
Model featured: ATS-3 USS Brunswick
- circa 1972 -
Operating at sea in wartime, these ships are capable of performing limited defensive functions simultaneously while in Readiness Condition I and are capable of performing other functions which are not required to be performed simultaneously. They maintain continuous Readiness Condition III at sea and provide towing, salvage, rescue and diving services to fleet units. They can support conventional diving operations to a depth of 190 feet, and support mixed gas diving operations to a depth of 300 feet. When assigned a portable deep dive system, they can support operations to a depth of 850 feet. They provide the capability for a tidal lift of 300 short tons (dynamic lift of 150 short tons) and are capable of providing compressed air for blowing a submarine free of flooding water from diving limit depth.
In April 1992 ATS-3 USS Brunswick towed the large auxiliary floating dry dock AFDB-8 Machinist, which was relocated to Pearl Harbor during the U.S. military withdrawal from Subic Bay, Philippines.
