Since the end of the Cold War, the roles of cruisers and destroyers in the US Navy have become so similar, that traditional lines of distinction have blurred.  The highly capable Arleigh Burke Class destroyers fill the same role once reserved for the larger cruisers, such as the Ticonderoga Class ships.  Destroyers both protect the larger and more vulnerable aircraft carriers, as well as launch missile attacks against targets on land.

The Spruance Class destroyers are the old stalwarts in the category, built in the 1980s to counter the Soviet submarine threat.  The Arleigh Burke Class, currently in production, is the latest entrant in the class, and has very similar systems to the Ticonderoga Class cruisers.  The Zumwalt Class is being designed as a follow-on to the Burke Class, and will have an enhanced role in attacking targets ashore.

The Benson Class destroyers (built between 1939 and 1943) were designed to replace the older Sims Class.  One of the improved features was alternating boiler and engine rooms to improve their survivability to torpedo attacks.  They participated in virtually every major action of World War II.  We offer profile drawings of all 30 ships in the Class.

The 18 ships of the Mahan Class destroyers were built between 1935 and 1937 at various shipyards.  The last 2 ships of the Class, USS Dunlap DD 384 and USS Fanning DD 385, were modified slightly, and are sometimes referred to as Dunlap Class Destroyers.  The members fo the Mahan Class served valiantly during World War II, primarily in Pacific waters.  A number were present at Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941, and are credited with shooting down several of the attacking Japanese aircraft.  Six of these ships were lost during the war, while twelve survived to be retired.

George Bieda can produce drawings of all ships in the class, configured for specific time periods.  This will include camoflage paint schemes, where appropriate.  Pictured below are 2 examples:
