Apex (AM-142)

Apex (AM-142) was laid down on 8 June 1942 at Tampa, Fla., by the Tampa Shipbuilding Co.; launched on 7 December 1942; sponsored by Mrs. J. L. Chancey; and completed on 17 August 1943. Transferred to the Government of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics that same day, she served the Soviet Navy as T-115. The Soviets have retained her since that time. She was carried on the American Navy list, as MSF-142 after 7 February 1955, until 1 January 1983 when her name was struck from the Navy list.
