The US Navy christened its newest Expeditionary Fast Transport vessel, USNS Guam (T-HST 1), in Okinawa, Japan, on 27 April.

USNS Guam is an aluminium catamaran designed to be fast, flexible and manoeuvrable, even in austere port conditions.

The vessel’s 25,000 sq ft mission-bay area can be quickly reconfigured for any cargo requirement, from supporting disaster relief to transporting troops and equipment.
