The workhorses of any combatant fleet. This topic is for the discussion of the DDs of any and all navies, the good, the bad and the ugly. And for their battles. I think that a quick note of each member's favorite class of tin can would be a good way to start things off. My favorite American class is the FLETCHER class; a good, sound, solid class that performed many tasks brilliantly. The British Tribal class are another fave of mine, for much the same reason.
