The T-2 was a class of oil tanker with construction that was standardized to meet the United States need of production during World War II. Five hundred and thirty-three T-2s with turbo-electric drive were built from 1940 to 1945. They transported fuel oil, diesel fuel, gasoline, and black oil-crude oil. After the war, the T-2 was the backbone of the commercial tanker industry.
