High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! USS ATA-215 was an ATA-214-class tug of the United States Navy built near the end of World War II. Originally laid down as Paloverde (YN-86), a net tender of the Ailanthus class, she was redesignated as AN-65, a net layer, before launch. Before completion, the name Paloverde was cancelled and the ship was named ATA-215, an unnamed auxiliary ocean tug. Post-war she was assigned to the Finn Ronne Antarctic Expedition where she became stuck in the ice for 12 months before returning to the United States for decommissioning.
