What is the difference between a destroyer and a destroyer escort?
I served in the Australian Navy in the 1960s and early 70s. Destroyers became bigger ships after WW11. When I 1st joined HMAS Derwent, she was a Type 12 frigate. After we got our American built Charles F. Adams destroyers, our type 12 frigates were re-designated as destroyer escorts. The Type 12s,or Whitby class to give them their original name, were around 2,500 tons. Bigger than a lot of WW11 destroyers. The Charles F.Adams Class were over 5000 tons. In WW11 and prior to that they would have ben designated as cruisers. I believe the different names simply indicate larger and smaller destroyers. Allen Lyne ex-POUC, RAN

What is the size of the destroyer in world war 11?
A destroyer is a relatively small warship, often referred to by sailors in WWII as "tin cans". They tend to give a very rough ride in heavy seas. "Destroyer" is actually short for "torpedo boat destroyer", which the class of ships originally was. With the development of self-propelled naval torpedoes around 1900, the battleships of every nation were suddenly vulnerable to attack from small, cheap, light boats equipped to launch torpedoes, spurring the counter-measure of a "torpedo boat destroyer" class. Different nations built destroyers of different sizes, but all were small. The US built 175 Fletcher class destroyers during the war, which were pretty big for a destroyer. They were about 375 feet long, 30 feet wide, and drew 13 feet of water. The crew was about 275. The preceding US class of destroyers was the Gleaves class, about 350 feet long, 36 feet wide, and also drawing 13 feet of water, with a slightly smaller crew. Sixty-two Gleaves class destroyers were built. The class after the Fletcher class was the Sumner class, about 375 feet long, 41 feet wide, and drawing nearly 16 feet of water, with a crew of around 350. Fifty-eight Sumner class destroyers were built. The Navy operated several earlier classes of destroyers, especially in the early days of the war, including the old "four pipers" mothballed since WWI. Fifty of these "four pipers" were transferred to Great Britain before the US became involved actively in the war, in a controversial move for a "neutral" nation.

What does a destroyer do?
IT DESTROYS!!!!! * In the late 1800's they were called "torpedo boat destroyers." As years went by the name was shortened, just as "battle-ships of the line" became battleships, and "aircraft carriers" are coming to be known simply as carriers. * The idea was to protect the larger warships; battleships and cruisers, from enemy torpedo boats, and they did so by surrounding them; the destroyer screen. Later, torpedo boats became less of a threat, but aircraft and submarines arrived to replace them, and the destroyer was still needed to operate with cruisers, battleships, and carriers. * In the past, it was easy to distinguish cruiser from destroyer by their sizes, but today that difference is less apparent. The Spruance class destroyer and Ticonderoga class cruiser are actually built on the same hull. Cruisers are primarily command-and-control ships now, and destroyers still do what they do. They provide a ring of protection for the carriers and cruisers with which they operate, but they are also capable of operating alone.
