She contributes to accomplishing the functions of sea control through her specialized configuration as an anti-submarine frigate, mounting a variety of electronic and acoustic sensors and weapons. AINSWORTH was named in honor of Vice Admiral Walden Lee Ainsworth, U.S. Navy. It is the first ship ever to bear the name. Vice Admiral Ainsworth was a distinguished task force commander in the South Pacific Campaign of World War II and known as " a destroyerman ' s destroyerman. " AINSWORTH was built by Avondale Shipyards, Inc., of Westwego, Louisiana. She is the thirteenth ship of the JOSEPH HEWES class of frigates. AINSWORTH was commis- sioned 31 March 1973 and is manned by 18 officers and more than 260 enlisted personnel. The ship is especially designed for locating and destroying enemy submarines, but is also capable of performing such other missions as patrols, search and rescue, blockade, surveillance, shore bombardment, anti-surface warfare, and anti-air warfare. AINSWORTH is outfitted with some of the most modern electronic equipment for detecting ships, submarines, and aircraft. Main features include the ship ' s three sonar (underwater sound detection) systems. One, mounted in the hull at the bow is capable of gaining surface or subsur- face contacts at extremely long ranges. The other two have variable depth capability and are towed astern. AINSWORTH ' s principle armanent is the homing torpedo. Placed in the general vicinity of an enemy submarine, the torpedo will seek out and destroy its target. The three systems installed on the ship to deliver the torpedo to the target area include: over-the-side torpedo tubes, the ASROC (Anti-Submarine Rocket) launcher, and the LAMPS (Light Airborne Multi-purpose System), a manned helicopter. Other major armanent includes the 5 ' 754 rapid fire gun, having a primary purpose of anti-air and anti-surface warfare. It is also effective for shore bombard- ment in support of forces of beachheads to several miles inland. In August 1976, AINSWORTH became the first ship in the Atlantic Fleet to receive the production version of the Harpoon missile. The Harpoon missile, with beyond-the-horizon ranges in excess of 50 nautical miles, adds significantly to AINSWORTH ' s fighting capability. In addition to these systems, AINSWORTH has the most up-to-date point defense system, the MK 15 Close-in Weapons System, designed to shoot down incoming missies. AINSWORTH is powered by a single, five bladed propeller driven by steam turbines develop- ing 35,000 shaft horsepower. Featuring automatic combustion control of her two boilers, which operate at steam pressures of approximately 1200 pounds per square inch, she is capable of speeds in excess of 27 knots (more than 30 miles per hour). The ship is 438 feet long — 47 feet wide, with a Navigation Draft (deepest point below the waterline) — of 27 feet. AINSWORTH is assigned to Destroyer Squadron Two and is homeported in Norfolk, Virginia.

THE SHIPS INSIGNE The arms of AINSWORTH, designed from the ideas of the ship ' s company, reflects elements symbolic of the life of Vice Admiral Walden Lee Ainsworth as well as values inherent in American and Naval tradition. The concept of a knight brandishing a battle axe, togeth- er with the colors red and silver, derive directly from the Ainsworth family coat-of-arms. In concert, they represent strength, fortitude and nobility in persuit of peace. The seahorse represents prowess and fortitude. In addi- tion to the connotation of vigilance at sea, the seahorse symbolizes the forces of science and industry, vital ele- ments in design, construction and operation of the ship. The motto Parata Pugnare meaning " Prepared to Fight " , stresses the primary goal of readiness to act to further the values which have become our heritage. The motto also encompasses the nickname of the fighting destroyerman who was " Pug " Ainsworth. The continuous line highlighting the border of the crest, signifies the unity and the continuity of the ship ' s crew. May that line be a strong one. May it never part. May this crest inspire those who comprise that line to act in the persuit of excellence throughout the life of a proud ship bearing a proud name and proud heritage. . 79 USS CORAL SEA USS AMERICA BATTLEGROUP 80 ,i iri« '
