Hello again!

Though not employed by the RN, the next are at least British-built: The Greek Wild Beast Class, originally built for Argentina, but hastily purchased by Greece for the Balkan Wars and named Aetos (Eagle), Ierax (Hawk), Leon (guess) and Panthir (guess again). Photographic reference indicates both the colous schemes below were in use at some point, but I could not find out when exactly and by which ship in the class.

They have already been drawn, and quite well (by Rey Ayanami, I think, who has meanwhile vanished from the Bucket), but the pics seem to have been swallowed by Majhost or some other monstrous entity.

Greetings
GD

Incredibly good work, as usual.
Unfortunately we can't compare with the previous work, for reasons stated above.
Any way, and not to detract from either work, these drawings are magnificent.

Indeed, beautiful drawings. I like to see every new early destroyer. There were so many from them and every new drawing is an addition to the huge puzzle.

Great work one more time, great detailing, and the coloring of the stacks gives them a little original touch that doesn't hurt things.

Is anyone planning to do the M class ships ordered by Turkey?

Hello everyone - and thanks everyone!!

@Krakatoa: Almost forgot about your offer for drawings of the Aussie 'I'-class, i'd be happy if you could PM me them. The S-class is well documented in the www, and a very well drawn specimen is already in the archive, so I won't be needing that one. Thanks in advance.

@Seeker: Look on page one of this very thread. The Turkish order were no M-class units, but a much larger type with two additional 102mm guns. This became the Talisman-class.

But someone indeed ordered four M-class destroyers in Britain, which was the Greek government. These vessels were based on the Admiralty M-design, but easily distinguishable from their British sisters. They had a raised forefunnel, different funnel spacing, gun Q placed between the fist and second funnel rather than the second and third, additional superstructure aft, and a mainmast almost as high as the foremast. They had only the forward searchlight, the aft position was occupied by a single 40mm Pompom. The stern shape also seems to have been different according to Conway's and a rather crude Russian line drawing, but I'm not sure, all photographs I found show only forward views. They were to be named for Greek Islands - Kriti, Lesvos, Samos and Chios - but received names of creatures from Greek mythology starting with the letter M in British service, becoming HMS Medea, Medusa, Melpomene and Melampus. One was lost in an accident in 1916, the rest were scrapped in 1921.
