D class destroyer leader

[ img ]

The D class (or Darrus class) leaders were a new generation of Wesmeric destroyers designed under treaty limitations, utilizing twin high angle 4.7" gun mounts compared to the singles that were the standard before. These new mounts were able to fire at high flying targets, however the train rate wasn't sufficient enough to track aircraft very effectively yet. These destroyers were well regarded for being good sea boats even in the Freyatic's rough seas. The D class was built to lead squadrons of E and F class destroyers, most of which were built during or after the construction of the Ds.

That is a lovely looking destroyer, certainly picking up 1930s British style vibes off this one.

I'm also working on another destroyer class for a different nation.
