Notes: These ships were originally designed as multi-purpose destroyers; in June 1986 they were selected for the TRUMP (Tribal Update & Modernization Program) which completely shifted their focus to AAW. The refit was quite extensive, involving major weapons, sensors, structure, and electronics changes. The “v” funnels were replaced by a single stack. During the refits the ships were also NBC-sealed. Algonquin completed in 1991, Iroquois in 1992, and Athabaskan in 1994. Although Huron was intended to serve until 2015, cutbacks in the navy’s budget forced her premature retirement.

HMCS Athabaskan participated in disaster relief in New Orleans following hurricane Katrina.
