|USS Calvert (AP-65)
|82k||Calvert (AP-65) underway on trials near Baltimore, MD. off Sparrows Point, 30 September 1942 prior to being commissioned.
Note the plain appearance of the ship as initially converted, with no raised gun positions forward, the two 3"/50 guns there being on deck, and a single level position
aft for the two 3"/50 guns there. The gun on the stern is a 5"/38 dual purpose weapon.

|USS Calvert (APA-32)
|86k||Calvert (APA-32) off Norfolk Navy Yard, 17 August 1943. As a result of the addition of two twin 40mm twin mounts in 1943,
this ship received a two level structure on the bow with one 3"/50 gun (the other forward 3"/50 was deleted) and one twin 40mm mount, and acquired an even taller three
level structure aft with a twin 40mm mount on top, some 20mm guns in the middle, and two 3"/50 guns on the bottom. The original 5"/38 gun remains on the stern.
