USS Abbot

U.S.S. Abbot leaves Philadelphia Naval Shipyard, 6 November 1951, following modernization. Her main battery of 5-inch dual-purpose guns has been cut from five to four, and modern twin 3-inch mounts have replaced the quadruple and twin 40-millimeter guns. Three of these mounts can be seen: two amidships and one atop the after deckhouse. Also note tripod foremast and covered “hedgehogs” aft of Mount 52. (NH 96644) [original U.S. Navy caption]
