Probably takes the prize for being the oldest still ins ervice and in its intended role supporting submarines.


But he misseda few ships like the romanian Mircea for example, which has been in servie since the thirties. Or the USCGC/USS Sea Cloud. (off the top of my head) there are probabaly more.
