Based on DD433 Gwin (2x quintuple 21" TT) and DD616 Nields (with only 1 set of quintuple 21" TT), this item contains 6 and 2 vessels respectively, representing typical USN Benson/Gleaves class destroyers as they appeared in 1943. Thirty (30) Bensons were built during 1939–1943 while 66 Gleaves were built (1938–1942).
Though the models are based on the Gleaves class, they don't visually differ much from the Bensons, the later having flat-sided funnels
(vs Gleaves' rounded ones).
Typical USN Mahan-class destroyers in their 1942 appearance; based on DD378 Smith (foreground half) and DD364 Mahan (background half). Note the differences of their aft deckhouse.
Displacing 1450 tons, 16 ships were built between 1935 and 1937 (excluding the Dunlap and Fanning), with 6 lost during WW2.
