To enable the speedy build-up of their
navy after World War II the Federal Republic of Germany received
on lease from the USA six destroyers of the Fletcher Class. Before they were taken over all the vessels received
a general overhaul and refit in accordance with the requirements of the German Navy. Extensive modifications
were also made to the deck superstructures. The Destroyer 1 (Z1) NATO designation D170
went into service with the German Navy in January 1958 as a destroyer of the new Class 119.
The Destroyer 5 (Z5/D179) followed in February 1960. Based on the existing model kit for the
US Navy Fletcher Class Destroyers, 155 new components give a detailed and authentic
reproduction of the German Navy version. In addition to the main armament, four 127 mm gun
mountings, the three semi-automatic twin barreled quick-fire 76.2 caliber cannon are shown in detail
with movable barrels. The latter were designed to secure the air space above it.
This highly detailed model kit also includes the five torpedo tubes for surface-to-surface warfare,
two torpedo tubes for anti-submarine warfare and two Hedgehog anti-submarine mine layers.
