Destroyers



USS Barry - DD 933


Destroyers are considered the most versatile ships in the navy, capable of performing missions ranging from escorting convoys to screening aircraft carriers from submarine, air and surface attack. The first American destroyers were commissioned in 1902 to protect the battleline from torpedo boats. During WWII, they were fitted with depth charges to counter the German submarine offensive and anti-aircraft guns to fight kamikaze attacks in the Pacific. Today's destroyers are equipped with guided missiles for long-range targets, antisubmarine capabilities and two Seahawk helicopters.
