Allied Warships


The cutter USCGC Comanche of the Algonquin class.

All Cutter classes

The list is divided by navy, then ordered by commissioned date of each class (oldest first).


United States Coast Guard

 Haida (4)1921 - 1922
 Lake (10)1928 - 1932
 Algonquin (6)1932 - 1935
 Treasury (7)1936 - 1937
 Owasco (13)1945 - 1946

Please note that we list the classes by navies that initiated/owned the class. Often vessels of certain classes were then built for other nations (or lent), those ships are not visible here but only through the navies pages or by looking into each class.
