The Buckley -class destroyer escorts were destroyer escorts launched in the United States in — They served in World War II as convoy escorts and anti-submarine warfare ships. The ships had General Electric steam turbo-electric transmission. The ships were prefabricated at various factories in the United States , and the units brought together in the shipyards, where they were welded together on the slipways. The Buckley class was the second class of destroyer escort, succeeding the Evarts -class destroyer escorts.
