probably :lol: :lol: :lol:.....its a good scenario actually, will our 3 jacinto class patrol boats do well head-to-head with this WW2 destroyer?

just a little bit of historical info, the LAFFEY also participated in the liberation of the Philippines during WWII.

There are goals and efforts for the Philippines to have the capability to defend itself against external aggression. It is not forgotten. We just have to prioritize. - Ruffy Biazon, former congressman of Muntinlupa City 2001-2011

The Philippines  have done an amazing job keeping their Cannon-class Frigate operational–who would have imagined that the World War II veteran (with a U-boat kill to her credit, no less) would still be up and operational for the Balikatan 2010 exercises?  That is an amazing feat, and if there is a Navy out there that can keep an older combatant going, it’s the Philippines’ Navy.

isn't the SS-343 CLAMAGORE a post-ww2 sub?

the Hull design is more representative of submarines during the NAUTILUS - era, though this one seems to be diesel-electric

Is there a URL for that Museum?

Thanks

you're right she was commissioned a few weeks before the end of WWII. She was modified first to GuppyII and then to GuppyIII, the final configuration attained by the diesel submarines before the introduction of nuclear submarines.

It's a true-to-scale- exhibit that shows the living conditions and operational areas of Vietnam  naval support base veterans. It is located at PATRIOTS POINT Naval & Maritime Museum, Mt. , South Carolina USA.
