About the German Destroyer Z Class The Z class destroyer was constructed during Germanys rearmament prior to WWII. Thecomparatively large hull and high temperature/high pressure boilers combined with efficientGerman workmanship for an imposing and effective ship. A large number of destroyers,designated Z1 to Z43, were deployed between 1935 and 1944. The early types (Z1-22) wererelatively lightly armed with five 12.7cm guns, while the 1936A Type (Z23-30) and 1936AMobilization Type (Z31-34, Z37-39) featured heavier 15cm guns. As air power began to play adominant role in naval warfare, plans were drawn up in 1944 under code-name Barbara to addair-defenses to the Z class destroyers. This was to comprise fourteen 37mm (6 coaxial, 2 single)and ten 20mm (3 coaxial, 1 quad) cannon as well as six 8.6cm RAG rocket launchers, withsome variations between individual ships.
