The T 53 design was a follow-on from the T 47. Five ships were authorized in 1953, the sixth was completed to a revised design.
The main difference as compared with the T 47 was an increased capability for tracking and controlling aircraft. The air search radar - an improved model - was moved to the mainmast so that a DRBI-10 height-finder could be installed on the foremast. ASW capability was increased by the addition of a 375mm Bofors ASW RL aft; the forward banks of ASW tubes were deleted in compensation.
