Only 1 min into the Z32 VoD. It looks, and sounds great. Wonderful work. Folks should check these out!

The operations page should look this cool....

I noticed a mistake in the narrative.  These destroyers did not have good seakeeping abilities.  That twin 5.9" turret forward made them nose heavy and they tended to plow through even moderate seas.

The inclusion of the 5.9" main armament was in all likelihood a mistake on such a lively ship.  The shells weighed in at right at 100 lbs. and were manually loaded with the assistance of a loading tray.  That's a lot of weight for a crewman to be lifting repeatedly and trying to place in the loading tray while the ship is moving and experiencing rolls to some extent.
