The Elizabeth C. Stantons were completed from 1940 to the end of the war. They were Maritime Commission standard C-3 Cargo merchants converted to troop transports, which did not make for particularly comfortable troop compartments. Still, they were large and fast with good range, with a maximum boom capacity of 30 tons.
