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.

Speed - 35.5 knots
Range - 7000 nm at 14 knots

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

Type 1335 class destroyer

[ img ]

The Type 1335s were the first Siegmaric destroyers to utilize dual purpose artillery for their main battery, inspired by the fact that Antarans were doing it with their Arabella class ships. The Type 1335s were also the first Siegmaric destroyers built under treaty limits, displacing 1510 tonnes standard. Despite the improvement in AA capability, without proper fire control and further innovations with flak shells, these destroyers did not provide adequate air defense when the World War came around, as demonstrated by a surprising amount of losses to aircraft. The majority of vessels that survived the war with sunk during gunnery training by Antara, or simply scrapped by Desnia.

G class destroyer leader

[ img ]

The G class were an incremental improvement of the D class leaders. The most notable change on what would've otherwise been a repeat, was the two smoke stacks, reverting back to the original boiler arrangement of pre-D class destroyers. The Wesmeric Admiralty weighed the risks and benefits and decided to go back. Other improvements include the relocation of her quad 40mm mount, an additional 20mm on the broadside, the removal of a whaleboat for additional space, and an improved director which eliminated the issue with having a split fire-control for surface and anti-aircraft combat.

They're not a high priority, but it is something I definitely plan to do in the near future. I first need to get that era figured out first. Its a black-hole so to speak.

I'm excited to see when you do touch more modern vessels, will definitely be an interesting sight to see from such a finely aged wine such as yourself
