ABSTRACT
The article offers the author's views on the capability of the U.S. Coast Guard icebreaker fleet. The author states that the Healy icebreaker is new and well equipped but is not the most powerful one, while the Polar Star and Polar Sea icebreakers are powerful, but more than 30 years old. The author opines that with the Polar Star placed in commission-special status, the two operational icebreakers, the Healy and the Polar Sea, are inadequate for supporting the Arctic and Antarctic operations.
