Origins[ edit ] The concept was proposed in for the Royal Navy to organize groups of warships to reinforce the Escort Group accompanying a escortt convoy.

The cost of Vietnam War combat operations prevented replacement of these ASW ships when they reached the end of their de life. The Allied Escor Convoy Conference of early agreed to set up ten groups of anti-submarine warships with an escort carrier in each.

Shortly thereafter, the submarine struck Buckley, opening a ezcort in the escort vessel's starboard side. These support group ships could focus on holding down and destroying submarines if freed of responsibility for returning to convoy screening stations. In early March,each Western Approaches escort group was to be reduced in strength by one frigatesloopor destroyer to form four support groups; and a half-flotilla of Home Fleet destroyers would form escott fifth support group.

As modern sub escort aircraft became too large to operate from escort carriers, Essex-class aircraft carriers were reclassified as anti-submarine warfare carriers CVS.

The U drew astern of Buckley and sank atafter hand grenades were dropped down its hatch. The slower speed of 1st and 2nd Support Group ships limited their ability to travel with the other groups, but E and F-classI-classL and M-classand O and P-class destroyers moved between the 3rd, esort and 5th Support Groups from one mission to the next. Support groups without escort carriers were assisted by VLR patrol bombers.
