to FF 1098 (previously canceled hull number);
to AGFF 1

1 Fiscal years 1952 (DE 1006), 1953 (1014-1015), 1954 (1021-1022), and 1955 (1023-1030).  Built to the SCB-72 design as ocean escorts for merchant convoys, they were considered prototypes which would be reproduced in quantity in case of mobilization.  They were extremely maneuverable despite the single screw.  They had an all aluminum superstructure, twin rudders and extensive electronics gear.  Their main deficiencies were their relatively low endurance and high cost.  All but DE 1006, 1014, and 1021 were modernized with DASH facilities and the SQS-23 sonar during the 1960's at the time of the FRAM modernization program.

2 Fiscal years 1956 (DE 1033-1034) and 1957.  The SCB-131 design combined the Dealey class hull with diesel engines in an attempt to get a simplified, austerity vessel capable of mass production.  It had greater endurane than the Dealeys and was les expensive, but its designed speed of 21 knots proved too low and it lacked a long-range ASW weapon.  The contracts for the Charles Berry and McMorris were originally let to American Shipbuilding Co., Lorain, Ohio, but were canceled there in May 1958.

3  Fiscal year 1960.  In 1958 Navy designers began efforts to adapt the relatively successful Dealey class design to a new generation of ASW equipment:  the SQS-26 sonar, ASROC and DASH.  They lengthened the hull and adopted a new hull form to maintain the designed speed at 24 knots.  The result, the SCB-199 design, also featured an enclosed bridge and fin stabilizers.

4 Fiscal years 1961 (DE 1040-1041), 1962 (1043-1045) and 1963.  Following studies of a 30-knot escort in 1959, the Navy concluded that a 27-knot type was feasible using the Bronstein class design, a 35,000 SHP DDG-2 class steam turbine and two pressure fired boilers.  These new boilers employed exhaust gases to power an air compressor which delivered pressurized air to the boilers.  The increased power of the propulsion plant forced a redesign of the hull.  The ships were also given 5" instead of 3" guns to permit their use of austerity destroyers.  This design, SCB-199A, was the only postwar destroyer or destroyer escort design for which Bethlehem Steel instead of Gibbs and Cox prepared the detailed plans.  DE 1040, 1041, 1044 and 1051 received LAMPS helicopter refits in 1972; 1043 and 1045 in 1973; 1049 in 1974; and 1047 in 1975.  All were reclassified to FF 30 Jun 1975.

5 Fiscal years 1964 (DE 1052-1061), 1965 (1062-1077), 1966 (1078-1087), 1967 ( 1088-1097) and 1968 (1098-1107).  The plans for this class (SCB-199C) were the result of a complete redesign of the ocean escort type starting with the plans of the Brooke class missile escorts.  The Tartar missile was deleted in 1962 and a 5"/54 gun substituted for the single 5"/38. In 1967 Gibbs and Cox recommended against using the relatively untested pressure fired boilers in such a large class, and the type was redesigned and lengthened 20 feet to accomodate conventional 1200-pound boilers.  The ships were maneuverable and long ranged but proved wet as completed.  Beginning in 1979, some received bulwarks foward to combat this problem.  DE 1063, 1066, 1074, 1078-80 received LAMPS helicopter refits in 1972; 1055, 1057, 1069, 1071-73, 1075, 1081, 1083-88 in 1973; 1053-54, 1056-58, 1060, 1076, 1089-97 in 1974; 1062, 1064, 1067, 1077, 1082 in 1975; and 1052, 1061, 1068, and 1070 in 1976.  All were reclassified to FF 30 Jun 1975.

6 Fiscal years 1962 (DEG 1-3) and 1963.  The SCB-199B design duplicated the Garcia class except for a Tartar missile launcher replacing the after 5-inch gun. (The Garcia design had included provisions for such a modification).  DEG 3 received a LAMPS helicopter refit in 1972; DEG 6 in 1973; and DEG 1, 2, and 5 in 1975.  All were reclassified to FF 30 Jun 1975.
