Based on the successful Fletcher Class destroyer that preceded it, the Allen M. Sumner Class destroyers were larger and more heavily armed - especially for anti-aircraft defense. The US Navy commissioned 58 of these ships (plus another 12 that were made into mine layers) in 1944 - 1945.

In the late 50s to early 60s, thirty-three Allen Sumner Class destroyers received numerous modifications under the Fleet Rehabilitation and Modernization (FRAM) program which gave the ships enhanced ASW capabilities and extended their working lifespan approximately 5 years. The FRAM 2 suite included SQS-4 sonar, SQS-9 variable depth sonar and the DASH (Drone Anti Submarine Helicopter) system. Improved surface and air search radars, electronic counter measures equipment, hedgehog launchers, new torpedoes and torpedo launching systems were also added.

Many Sumner Class ships survived until the early 1970s when they were sold off to various allied navies. Today they are still operated by Brazil (4), Greece (1), Iran (2), Korea (2), Taiwan (2) and Turkey (1).
