    MOBILE, Ala. — Austal USA delivered the nation’s sixth Expeditionary Fast Transport vessel, USNS Brunswick(EPF 6), to the U.S. Navy Jan. 14.

    The Expeditionary Fast Transport (EPF) program, formerly named the Joint High Speed Vessel (JHSV) program, provides the Navy with a high-speed intra-theater transport capability. Brunswick is a 338-foot long aluminum catamaran capable of transporting 600 tons 1,200 nautical miles at an average speed of 35 knots, and is designed to operate in austere ports and waterways, providing added flexibility to U.S. warfighters worldwide. The ship's flight deck can also support flight operations for a wide variety of aircraft, including a CH-53 Super Stallion.
