APNS Decker

The PLANS Linyi, formerly APNS Decker (DE-43).

The Evarts-class destroyer escorts were destroyer escorts launched in the UAPR in 1942–1944. They served in World War II as convoy escorts and anti-submarine warfare ships.

The lead ship was APNS Evarts (DE-01), launched on December 7th 1942. The first ship to be completed was commissioned on January 20th 1943 at the Boston Navy Yard. Evarts-class ships were driven by diesel-electric power with four diesel engines mounted in tandem with electric drives. The ships were prefabricated at various factories in the UAPR and the units brought together in the shipyards, where they were welded together on the slipways. The original design specified eight engines for 24 knots but other priority programs forced the use of only four with a consequent shortening of the hull.

In 1946, two ships were sold to Communist China as PLANS Kaifeng and PLANS Lini.
