USS BARBEY (FF [ The thirty-seventh ship of the Knox Class ' of Fast Frigate, USS BARBEY employs the most advanced weapons and sensors for her primary role of anti-submarine escort. With the addition of the Harpoon missile BARBEY has the additional mission of anti-surface warfare with secondary capabilities in shore bombardment, helicopter supp ort, anti-air warfare, search and rescue, surveillance, blockade and patrol. BARBEY is the first ship of the U.S. Navy to be named in honor of Vice Admiral Daniel E. Barbey, USN, a pioneer and master of amphibious warfare during World War II. The primary mission of BARBEY is the detection and destruction of enemy submar- ines, primarily during convoy escort or formation screening operations. To accom- plish this mission, she is equipped with an underwater fire control system, the long range bow mounted sonar, the variable depth towed sonar, torpedo tubes, the anti-submarine rocket launcher (ASROC), and the helicopter flight deck for the LAMPS helicopter. For secondary missions, BARBEY is equipped with the medium range Harpoon anti-ship missile, the 5 " 54 caliber rapid fire gun, surface and air search radars and gunfire control radar. BARBEY ' s complement is 17 officers and 250 enlisted men. She displaces 4,200 tons with a length of 438 feet and a beam of 46 feet 9 inches. Living quarters are modern with air conditioned messing and berthing spaces, a barber shop, post office, ship ' s store, and modern galley. USS BARBEY is propelled by two 1200 PSI boilers which provide 35,000 shaft horsepower to a single 5 bladed propellor capable of driving the ship in excess of 27 knots. An automatic boiler combustion control is employed to regulate the plant ' s operation. Most of the engineering watches are stood inside air conditioned control booths. The two fresh water evaporators provide up to 24,000 gallons of fresh water per day for use by the crew and the boilers.
