Recently, your webmaster purchased a book, "Ship's Data U. S. Naval Vessels", Vol. 1 published by the Bureau of Ships, Navy Department, April 15, 1945.  The publication was NAVSHIPS 250-010 and was RESTRICTED. 

There were 3 volumes published (250-010, 011 and 012), but only volume one contains information about Destroyer Escorts. 

A Letter of Promulgation dated April 15th is the first page in the book and was written by E. L. Cochrane, Vice Admiral U.S.N., Chief of Bureau.  In part, the letter reads:

NAVSHIPS 250-010 <011 and 012> ....... supersede the 1943 edition of "Ships' Data, U.S. Naval Vessels" together with the 1944 addenda thereto, which publications should be destroyed.

This document contains information affecting the National Defense of the United States within the meaning of the Espionage Act, 50 U.S.C., 31 and 32, as amended.  Its transmission or the revelation of its contents in any manner to an unauthorized person is prohibited by law.

It is forbidden to make extracts from or to copy these publications without specific authority from the Chief of Naval Operations, except as provided for in paragraph 517 of the registered publication manual.

So, as you can see, the US Navy considered this book to be the authoritative document about Navy vessels.  Therefore, I accept this information to be true and accurate above other sources.

After I have transcribed the information, I plan to donate the book to the National Archives, where I believe it belongs to be used by other Navy ship researchers.  Below is information from this book.


All WWII era Destroyer Escorts fall into one of the following design groups.

GMT - Diesel electric tandem motor drive - short hull
TE - Turbine electric drive, 3" guns
TEV - Turbine electric drive, 5" guns
FMR - Fairbanks Morse diesel reverse gear drive
DET - Diesel electric tandem motor drive - long hull
WGT - Gear turbine drive
