Always had a soft spot for the RN Tribal class destroyers - probably the names.

Maybe not best looking but one of fastest and heavily-armed destroyers on seas before WWII
Grom-class (Thunder class) destroyer proud of Polish Navy "ORP Błyskawica" (ORP Lightning)

Grom class destroyers where designed to be able to sail with max speed of 39,6 knots
ORP Błyskawica is the oldest preserved destroyer in the world

Pictures made in 2012(not by me) present original 1944 look

The French are good at a lot of things and sucking is one of them.

I must vote for the Gridley class, and on the speed front will note USS Maury hit 42.8 knots on trials. Fast enough for you?

I had always thought of Fletcher class as premium "best overall design" among WWII destroyers:
- Good looking
- Versatile
- Numerous
- Spacious

Eh?

a) What the hell is the Down In Flames Forum?
b) If you mean the Australian Beauties thread in the General Discussion Forum - then er...... I've re-written what I'm going to say here about four times. I will refrain from venting my true feelings because I can't be arsed
