DE-99 Cannon

There were six classes of destroyer escorts built during the wartime emergency demand for cheap, quickly constructed ocean-going escort ships. The Cannon class destroyer escorts were the longest ranged ships of their type with a range of 10,800nm. 70 ships of this class were constructed between October 1942 and August 1944 with 44 additional ships being cancelled. Six of the class were transferred to France and eight to Brazil upon completion.
