These light Destroyers were similar in size and armament to their German counterpart the Z34. Like it they were very effective in convoy escort and attack, providing AA cover for fleet operations and utilizing the ability to mount torpedo attacks against other shipping. It can carry troops during amphibious operations also, as we see often employed with the other boats in Battleground Europe.
