USS Taluga AO-62 was a Cimarron Class oiler with a T3-S2-A3 hull.
The Close-in fueling rig was used to replenish ships underway. The
Robb Coupling allowed for quick breakaway like HANCOCK!

To speed up the operation and minimize the total time
 required
for fueling a group
of ships, a fueling schedule was made up
in advance with each
oiler assigned to fuel one type of ship
if possible. This avoided having to change the fueling rig arrangement between ships.

There were 2 practice drills on the Ships Log
#1 in the Chesapeake Bay on 9-9-44     -    
#2 after leaving the Panama Canal on 10-18-44
