Mine-Warfare Ships and Boats Built Since WWII

Most recent update: May 18, 2012.


After the war, the Navy retained 60 Yard Minesweepers (YMS) and reclassified them as Motor Minesweepers (AMS).  Then, in the early 1950s, the Navy started to build new AMSs but, in 1955, changed the designation to MSC and simultaneously reclassified the 60 ex-YMSs as MSC(O)s , where the O stood for Old.  The basic design of the new boats had a light displacement of 390 tons and was 144 feet long.  In total, 312 were built, all but 24 of them being transferred directly to allied navies, and 59 of them being built by yards in the recipient countries.  The Navy also retained 50 other craft - mostly LCI(L)s and LCTs - after the war and converted them to Coastal Minesweepers (Undersea Locator), or AMCUs: this designation was changed to Mine Hunter (MHC) in 1955.  In parallel with the MSC program, the Navy also built a series of Ocean Minesweepers (AM): this designation was changed to MSO in 1955.  The basic design of these boats had a light displacement of 630 tons and was 172 feet long.  In total, 101 were built, of which 65 were for the U.S. Navy and 36 were for allied navies: all these boats were built by U.S. yards.  In the late 1950s, the Navy initiated a third program, to build Inshore Minesweepers, (MSI).  The basic design of these boats had a light displacement of 120 tons and was 112 feet long.  In total, 55 were built, all but the first two for allied navies: only the first eight were built in U.S. yards, the remainder being built by yards in the recipient countries.  Also in the 1950s, the Navy built a series of Minesweeping Boats (MSB) and another of Minesweeping Launches (MSL).  There appear to have been at least 54 MSBs and at least 40 MSLs, but the records are very sketchy.  The standard MSB was 44 tons and 57 feet long, while the MSL was 10 tons and 36 feet long.  Any information about these boats would be welcomed.  Following this surge of activity in the 1950s and 60s, there was no new construction activity until the Reagan Administration, when the Navy built 14 Mine Countermeasures Ships (MCM) and 12 Mine Hunters (MHC).  At present, there are no plans for any new mine-warfare ships or boats, the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) having taken over this role.
