USS SC-131

USS SC-131

Turd F.
This is my rendition of a ship similar to the USS SC-131. The 131 was a standard vehicle, built in 1917, of the SC-1 class of Submarine Chasers. In 1916, Assistant Secretary of the Navy Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered the US Navy to design a small anti-submarine vessel that could be built quickly in small civilian boatyards, as if war came, larger shipyards would be busy building larger warships. By 1919, 441 of these ships had been completed, the 131 being one of them. #1917 #civilian #SC131 #Submarine_Chaser #USS #WWI
