General History
HMCS Annapolis was commissioned in 1964 as the latest in a line of steam driven destroyers designed specifically for anti-submarine operations. She and her sister, Nipigon, carry one Sea King all weather helicopter as their primary anti-submarine weapon system. Both vessels have recently undergone modernizations aimed at extending their useful lives to the end of the century.
