No to Vendetta or Vampire

No to Van Nes

Both would have been my first guesses, particularly Van Nes, as the Dutch put letter identifications on the bow of their DDs.

But Van Nes would have been painted "VN", to distinguish from Van Galen "VG". See picture below (which IS Van Nes)

Still open on what the mystery ship is......

The 'V' stands for Visitor, and that is the Alien Flagship invading USS America's AAR.

Another good guess, and I would have guessed a V & W. But she isn't a V, W, or modified W class. That would be too easy for this knowledgeable crowd.

You are warm, though.

HMAS. Voyager in the Pacific, late in the war.

EDIT: Silly me couldn't have been Voyager as she was wrecked on the Timor Coast, on 16th September 1942.

I named the file that on purpose to throw people off. That is incorrect, however.

It's not Voyager.

As a side note, my barber (who is past 80), served on HMS Voyager in the Pacific. How about that? Keeps a photo in his RN uniform by the chair. He joined in 1943, and was VERY young. Moved to US in 50s and opened a Barbershop in Chicago: Colin's of London.

I knew this would be a tough one.........

Hummm.. ok not a V&W.. its not a A class, the bridge is diffrent and so are the gun mounts. its not a S class as they only had one forward mount.

Dutch Yarrow type Destroyer (Torpedobootjagers), There were 8, but 2 started with V; Van Galen or Van Nes.

Nope. This ship is not Dutch, I will confirm that.

I,m stuck in bed with the flu, so I went through all my books, think I've found it. Portuguese Vouga class Destroyer, and with the V its Vouga herself.

rjg is CORRECT!

Nice job!

She served in the Pacific during WWII

Hornblower was close, because she was a "modified-Modified W" class. She used the same hull as the Thornycroft-built Modified W's, but differed in a couple important details, including 1 fewer 4.7 in gun, (replaced by minesweeping gear), different AA loadout, and slightly upgraded boilers and speed.

As rjg identified, she and 5 sisters were built by Thornycroft for the Chilean Navy in the late 20s. All served through WWII, presumably in the Pacific, since that's the only ocean in Chile.

I picked her from the class, because I knew the "V" would throw people off (and you can't see the flag in this photo)

Nice job.
