AD 41-44 were of the GOMPERS (SCB 700.FY) design, although the Navy regarded them as a separate class. They were all built by General Dynamics, National Steel and Shipbuilding Corp., San Diego. AD 45 was proposed but not built. Like AD 37-38, the four later ships were decommissioned in 1994-1996 after the Navy abandoned the use of forward deployed tenders to support operating forces.
