_________

 

1 Due to production problems, some of the SC-497 class were built with 1540-hp. power plants and a speed of 21 knots; others received an 800-hp. installation which gave them a 15.6-knot speed.

 

2 These are typical armaments mounted in SCs of these classes when commissioned. Many variations existed; during the emergencies of both World Wars, ships were armed with whatever suitable ordnance was available.
