The Fletcher class Destroyer was the largest class built by the United States during World War II. Renowned as the backbone of the US Pacific Fleet, The Fletcher was designed in 1939 and the United States Navy commissioned 175 Fletcher-class destroyers between 1942 and 1944, more than any other destroyer class! The design was generally regarded as highly successful and after World War II ended 11 were sold to countries that they had been built to fight against (Italy, Germany and Japan) as well as other countries. Some went on to serve during the Korean War and the Vietnam War. Three have been preserved as museum ships in the U.S. and one in Greece. Fletchers had a design speed of 38 knots and were armed with five 5" guns in single mounts with 10 21" torpedoes in two 5-tube launchers, as well as various AA guns and depth charge launchers.
