UNITED T TES SHIP MOU T BAKER
Fleet Ammunition Ship
The USS MOUNT BAKER CAE-345 joined the fleet in July 1972. She is one of the four newest fleet
ammunition ships in the Navy - the AE-32 class.
This modern class of auxiliary support ship has brought an increased capability to the fleet for underway
replenishment. With her advanced-design replenishment facilities, she can more effectively accomplish the rapid
transfer of ammunition and other cargo to fleet units at sea.
MOUNT BAKER is 564 feet in length and 81 feet in the beam. When fully loaded with 6,000 tons of ordnance
cargo and 2,500 tons of fuel, MOUNT BAKER displaces 19,000 tons and has a minimum draft of 28 feet. The
ship is armed with two Close In Weapon Systems mounts. MOUNT BAKER has berthing and messing
accomodations for 31 officers and 399 enlisted personnel. When deployed, a Helicopter Support Detachment and
Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team are embarked.
This modern fleet ammunition ship is the second ship in the U.S. Navy to bear the name MOUNT BAKER.
The first ship, also an ammunition ship CAE-45, took part with gallantry and honor in both the European and
Pacific theaters of operation during World War II, as well as the Korean and Vietnam conflicts. She was stricken
from the Naval Register in December 1969.
Both the old and new MOUNT BAKER were narned for one of the more recently active volcanoes in the
United States. Mount Baker, a peak 10,778 feet high, is located in the Cascade Mountain Range in the state of
Washington. Having erupted as late as 1854, fumes and smoke can still be seen emanating from the peak today.
On.30 April 1792, Lieutenant Joseph Baker III, Royal Navy, aboard HMS DISCOVERY, sighted the mountain
which bears his name.
Primarily, USS MOUNT BAKER replenishes other fleet units with bombs, bullets, missiles, mines, projectiles,
powder, torpedoes, various other explosive
devices and incendiaries as well as
associated ordnance cargo. Secondarily, she
maintains a replenishment at sea capability
for limited quantities of fuel, water and
combat stores. The ship also has facilities
for limited ship repair and maintenance
services, as well as special project services.

The Machinist's Mates of M
Division ensure the continued
operation of the generators, main
engines and the "notorious"
evaporators that provide potable
water for the ship. With the main
engines rated at 22,000 shaft
horsepower, the MOUNT BAKER
can "steady steam" in excess of 20
knots. Like all snipes, this job is hot
and dirty, but without them, the
ship is D.l.W.
The Boiler Technicians of B
Division are responsible for the
maintenance and upkeep of the
ship's three 600 psi D-type boilers
and their related equipment, that
allows the ship to get underway.
The steam that they provide not
only moves the ship, but also
powers the galley equipment and
makes hot water for showers. And
for anyone who ever had to get I2
o'clock reports together, the BTS
provide the daily fuel and water
reports from the Oil Lab. Without
this division, the ship would never
have made it home to Charleston.

"Course, speed and CPA!" This is the battle cry
from Combat while the ship is underway. The
Operations Specialist and Electronic Warfare
Technician give the bridge watch team the
information it needs to keep the ship standing out of

The Radiomen and Signalmen of OC!OS Division
keep the ship informed of any information that comes
their way. with the aid of the "big eyes" and the
teletypes and satellite input, these people are always the
first to have information, whether it be news or the
announcement of an approaching vessel. They keep the
ship in touch with the rest of the world and the
surrounding areas. Keeping the lines of communication
ODFII, whether by flaghoist or bridge-to-bridge, these
shrpmates are always on duty.
