Equipped with pusher knees to work with barges, the Canadian Forces Auxiliary vessel Tonnerre is another craft that is not quite a tug, but can do some kinds of tug work.

Attached to Fleet Diving Unit (Atlantic) based at Jetty NA in Shearwater, the boat carries the designation FDUA3 (partially obstructed by the open door to the wheelhouse). Like most naval auxiliaries it is poorly documented, so I have no specific details on it.

The name Tonnerre is a traditional one, and has been attached to other vessels in the past.
