USS Ericsson has been the name of three warships in the United States Navy. They are all named for John Ericsson, the inventor of the USS Monitor and a torpedo that was cable-powered by an external source. More recently, a support ship in the Military Sealift Command has been designated by his full name.

  • USS Ericsson (TB-2), a torpedo boat, served from 1897 until 1912.
  • USS Ericsson (DD-56), an O'Brien-class destroyer, served in the navy from 1915 until 1922. Transferred to the United States Coast Guard where she served from 1925 until 1932 as CG-5.
  • USS Ericsson (DD-440), a Gleaves-class destroyer, served from 1941 until 1946.
  • MS John Ericsson the Swedish American Line trans Atlantic passenger ship MS Kungsholm 1928-1941 was requisitioned by the US Government in 1942, renamed John Ericsson, and operated by the War Shipping Administration as a troop transport until returned to the line after the war and then sold to other lines.
  • USNS John Ericsson (T-AO-194), a Henry J. Kaiser-class underway replenishment oiler operated by the Military Sealift Command to support ships of the United States Navy.
