USN WW I Four Stack DDs to AVD, APD and possibly AGP

Underway at 10:30 today so I got to make this quick.
Not sure this si the right place but you guys seem to be real history buffs.


I am looking for detailed info on the conversion of USN WW I Four Stack DDs to AVD, APD and possibly AGP . I know they lost a funnel and Torpedo tubes but I am looking for exactly what else they lost and exactly what replaced those parts. Deatils such as how many fire rooms and engine rooms remained and how they reallocated the space to accommodate their new missions would be very helpful.

Thanks.

I didn't see this post until now. It should probably go in the military history part of the board. I know the AVD's got extra fuel for the birds they were tending. The APD's got berthing space.

This link gives a few basics

I haven't read the book, but this one goes into a bit more detail.
