|USS Monitor (LSV-5)
|67k||The newly completed USS Monitors (LSV-5) at the New York Navy Yard, 14 June 1944. The ex-netlayers could be distinguished from the ex-minelayers by their cut-off bows (presumably adopted to handle nets), single funnels, and twin 5"/38 mount aft (instead of two singles in the ex-minelayers). The stern has a hard knuckle, rather than the curve of the ex-minelayers. Her camouflage is Measure 31 Design 15L.
