Frigate Garcia class

Improved Bronstein class design of Destroyer Escorts (DE) modified to carry a LAMPS SH-2 Seasprite helicopter. They used to have two fixed Mk37 torpedos launchers on the stern which were later removed. They were reclassified as Frigates (FF) in 1975. Garcias were extensively used as testbeds of new systems for later classes
