Replenishent Oiler Tae Cheong (AOE 58)
A starboard-side view of Tae Cheong.
Tae Cheong is one of South Korea's three modern replenishment oilers.
They are 9,000 ton ships which carry both fuel and solid stores; they
have four UNREP stations, two each for solid cargoes and for fuels. Tae
Cheong was commissioned in 1998.

Looking up at the forward 40mm gun mount from the bow.
The ship has two such mounts, fore and aft. UNREP kingposts project

Unlike the CIWS-type mounts, these are manually-operated guns with an
operator in the mount.
