Under utilized, some problematic equipment issues plagued them their entire service life for ASW, never treated well by the Fleet since they weren't FAGs... But they did their mission well in spite of the issues. Lost a friend in the Med when one went in off the Kennedy on a search for a downed A-6. And yes, they DID sound like a Hoover vacuum cleaner when they cobbed the power in close! :-)

So, they were not FAGs then.
