Buckley-APD Sample

Destroyer escorts converted to fast transports (APD) during WW II. For the APD conversions the deckhouse amidships was considerably enlarged for troop accommodations, a pair of large davits was fitted on each beam to handle a stack of two LCVPs each, the fantail was cleared for cargo stowage, and a pair of 5-ton booms was provided on the aft superstructure for boat retrieval and cargo handling. The armament was reduced to one 5-in./38 cal. single MK 30 gun mount, six twin 40-mm MK 1 gun mounts, six 20-mm MK 4 gun mounts, and a pair of MK 9 depth charge release tracks.
