RFA Wave Knight (A389)

This Wave Class fast fleet tanker is the second ship in the Royal Fleet Auxiliary to bear the name. She supplies her sister vessels with essential supplies on deployments around the world.


Commanded by Captain Simon Herbert, and with a ship’s company of 72 Royal Fleet Auxiliary personnel, RFA Wave Knight’s role is to deliver food, fuel, water and other essential supplies to Royal Navy and coalition warships. Thanks to Wave Knight, these ships can remain operational for months or even years at a time.

Wave Knight and her crew are capable of supporting amphibious forces, anti-surface and anti-submarine warfare operations. They also play a vital role in protecting shipping routes, countering piracy, and providing humanitarian relief.
