Class Notes:
AGOR 9-10 incorporated lessons learned from the first ships of the type. On 30 Nov 1962 and 2 Jan 1963 ONR suggested changes to the AGOR 4 design and on 19 Feb 1963 RUSHIPS reviewed its action on the requests, which were incorporated into the design for AGOR 9-10. In turn, on 6 Jan 1964 OPNAV asked for comments on the present AGOR design, and on 13 Apr 1964 BUSHIPS recommended using the AGOR 9-10 design as the basis for these discussions, which presumably resulted in AGOR 12-13. All four ships were essentially repeats of AGOR 6-7 in which the mast was moved aft of the stack. S.P. LEE (AGS 31) was a variant of this class.
