Kingpin61 posted a topic in DestroyersIn searching for the 1939 Gibbs & Cox destroyer design for the Soviet Union, I searched through some congressional testimony and documents and found a letter that was not printed. So, I send out numerous requests to NARA and Gibbs & Cox to see if this letter with more information could be found. And it was. But not only was the letter found, there was another bonus in the email: So, I am humbly asking for anyone in DC to help me out here: I was given "File 711.00111 Armament Control Military Secrets/1996 in the series: Central Decimal File, 1930-1939; General Records of the Department of State, Record Group 59. " NARA notes that there are "two oversized design and specification plans that are too large to reproduce." If anyone could go to the archives and find these drawings and photograph them in as much detail as possible, it would be amazing. This would be something completely new for the online naval history community, as there is barely any information compiled about this design online. Thank you for anyone who is willing to help me and everyone else on this matter.
