The three destroyers of the class were built between 1938 and 1943 following a modified Mahan design. This is Mariz de Barros along all his long life. She began using old WW1 guns borrowed from Bahia Cruiser stocks and ended her life as the first Brazilian Navy Guided Missile destroyer:

Here is she as projected:

In 1943 she was finished at the Arsenal de Marinha do Rio de Janeiro with temporary weapons to go to Philadelphia Navy Yard where she will received her final armament:

In 1944 she left Philadelphia Navy Yard with her final armament of four 5 in Mk38 cannons, four 40 mm guns, 10 20 mm guns and four torpedo tubes:

Cool stuff, glad to see someone drawing these. I did not know Brazil built DDs along American lines (and then had them refitted in the US). Super interesting.

I do not need to be credited though since you haven't used any big parts from my drawings. ;)

I credit my drawings using my real name - Ian Roberts. I don't recognize the hull you have used, I think it's different enough that you can only credit yourself: (pepembr_mb)
