The aviation logistics support ship SS Wright (T-AVB-3) is playing an important support role during Bold Alligator 16, Aug 15-26. In addition to serving in its traditional role providing intermediate aircraft maintenance, the Wright is involved in limited objective experimentation to expose participants to new technologies, applications and concepts that will inform future warfighting capabilities. The experiment will test the ship’s suitability as a potential command and control platform, providing integrated air and ground logistics support, and as a possible hub for unmanned air and maritime vehicles providing support to the landing force. - The aviation logistics support ship SS Wright (T-AVB-3) is playing an important support role during Bold Alligator 16, Aug 15-26.
