If anybody feels like remaking some of my designs I prefer you notify me before so and maybe we can work together. if not all good just make sure you give credit too STEALTHy.(Preferably with a link)

This Navy Destroyer vessel that I have created has everything you could want in a destroyer. Its armament is a fully automatic gun in front of the ship and in another version that I'll be posting soon, you can have a rail gun (Transformers 2) that was used on USS Kidd. Which is actually just a nice way of saying TNT cannon.

This ship will be undergoing modifications as I see fit, but for now it is all finished. This vessel will be used in my Operation: Desert Storm map and will be placed as escort for large fleet.

In naval terminology, a destroyer is a fast and maneuverable yet long-endurance warship intended to escort larger vessels in a fleet, convoy or battle group and defend them against smaller, powerful, short-range attackers. Destroyers, originally called torpedo-boat destroyers in 1892,[1] evolved from the response of navies to the threat posed by the torpedo boat. Growing from earlier defensive developments, the torpedo boat destroyer (TBD) first appeared as a distinct class of warship when HMS Havock and HMS Hornet were commissioned into the Royal Navy in 1894.[2][3] By the time of the Russo-Japanese War in 1904, TBDs were "large, swift, and powerfully armed torpedo boats designed to destroy other torpedo boats."[4] Although the term destroyer had been used interchangeably with the terms "TBD" and "torpedo boat destroyer" by navies since 1892, the term torpedo boat destroyer had been generally shortened to simply "destroyer" by nearly all navies by theFirst World War.[5]

Prior to World War II, destroyers were light vessels with little endurance for unattended ocean operations; typically a number of destroyers and a single destroyer tender operated together. After the war, the advent of the guided missile allowed destroyers to take on the surface combatant roles previously filled by battleships and cruisers. This resulted in larger and more powerful destroyers more capable of independent operation.

At the beginning of the 21st century, destroyers are the heaviest surface combatant ships in general use, with only three nations (the United States, Russia, andPeru) operating the heavier class cruisers and none operating battleships[6] or true battlecruisers.[7] Modern destroyers, also known as guided missile destroyers, are equivalent in tonnage but vastly superior in firepower to cruisers of the World War II era, capable of carrying nuclear missiles. Guided missile destroyers such as the Arleigh Burke class are actually larger and more heavily armed than most previous ships classified as guided missile cruisers, due to their massive size at 510 feet (160 m) long, displacement (9200 tons) and armament of over 90 missiles.[8]

Navy Destroyer Minecraft Map


The Arleigh Burke class of guided missile destroyers (DDGs) is the United States Navy's first class of destroyer built around the Aegis Combat System and the SPY-1D multi-function phased array radar. The class is named for Admiral Arleigh Burke, the most famous American destroyer officer of World War II, and later Chief of Naval Operations. The class leader, USS Arleigh Burke, was commissioned during Admiral Burke's lifetime.

The first ship of the class was commissioned on 4 July 1991. With the decommissioning of the last Spruance-class destroyer, USS Cushing, on 21 September 2005, the Arleigh Burke-class ships became the U.S. Navy's only active destroyers; the class has the longest production run for any postwar US Navy surface combatant.[8] The Arleigh Burke class is planned to be the third most numerous class of destroyer to serve in the US Navy, after the Fletcher and Gearing classes.

With an overall length of 510 feet (160 m), displacement of 9,200 tons, and weaponry including over 90 missiles, the Arleigh Burke-class ships are larger and more heavily armed than most previous ships classified as guided missile cruisers.[9]

Additional Notes

Now this was originally made by hundread13 the problem with his ship was it was completely hallow and empty besides the captains deck. Was made out of Iron and it was impossible to get from the front of the ship to the back without breaking the ship. With my major modifications that is fixed. Plus the vessel had no hull what so ever, which I back had to install for 3 days then remove all the water spewing out of it. His only other creation was a missile firing vessel which you can download.

You can find his creations here. http://www.mcschematics.com/index.php?topic=9319.msg63526#msg63526

For one, I don't really know why I posted that comment....

Is that the one where the destroyer attacks the Yamamoto by itself. Attacking the largest battleship in history with just a little thing going in with torpedoes. If that's the one than yeah I've heard of it.

No, the Laffy was hit by about 6 Kamikazes and about 8 bombs, and still managed to arrive safely back at port. It was on an episode of the History channel show, "Dogfights"
