HYPOTHETICAL UNIT – FFE (Vancouver Class) 1956-
- x13 units, 10 for RCN, 3 for NATO mutual aid
- Memorandum to Cabinet, Mainguy summarized the navy’s proposal:
The Royal Canadian Navy is preparing plans for an anti-submarine escort vessel which is a simplified development of the St. Laurent-class destroyer escort. This twenty-four knot ship, known as the Vancouver-class frigate, is intended primarily for use in the limited role of immediate defence of a convoy and will not have the full capability of the St. Laurent-class destroyer escort in offensive anti-submarine operations. It will be a single screw ship as opposed to the twin screw St. Laurent-class destroyer escort and will use a single unit of machinery basically similar to the two units used in the St. Laurent-class ships. It will be possible to construct the Vancouver-class frigates relatively quickly in wartime and they will be more economical to build than the larger, faster and more powerfully armed St. Laurents.
