Mahan — American Tier VII destroyer.

Developed from the Farragut class, Mahan carried a more powerful torpedo armament. At the beginning of World War II, these destroyers were modernized with several automatic AA guns to fight enemy aircraft more efficiently.

This is the first US DD than has a torp range beyond its detection/concealment protection.  The torps are slow, which is a drawback.  It retains the fantastic guns and turret rotation speed.  So it i a good DD gunboat that can now stealth fire it's torps.

A good ship.

I am relatively new to the Mahan, but I find it a potent torpedo platform that can gun itself out of trouble.
