A quick and simple proposal, the USS Ward as APD 16 which fired the first shots of the war, as DD 139, in the Pacific sinking a Japanese Type A midget submarine on December 7, 1941 although the kill was not confirmed until 2002. As APD 16 the second boiler was removed reducing the speed to 25 knots, the removal of the torpedo tubes but for play balance leaving one mount on each side would make sense, and the 4" guns were replaced with 3" dual purpose guns. The anti ship capability drops but she gets real AA which is badly needed in tier 3 & 4.

I thought it was a good idea as the anti-ship firepower difference is not that much but with a very real increase in AA worth the small loss and a ship with real history for the collectors.

An alternate to Ward, for me, a has always been USS Edsall.

An interesting history but no improvement in AA which I was going for.

Give it better accel/decel and rudder shift.

I‘ave joked about Ward being used in Narai, so a player can land extra troops after the idiot bots yolo into the bay and die.
