The Allen M. Sumner class is a US Destroyer that we should be implementing in the game at tier 9 or 10, its a Gearing class variant.

It has good AA and can be used as a us AA destroyer.

In May 2018, it was announced that Gibson would be directing a WWII film titled Destroyer.  Destroyer, similar to Hacksaw Ridge, will also deal with the Battle of Okinawa in the Pacific Theater, although from a different front. It will be based on the heroic story of the crew belonging to USS Laffey (DD-724), who defended their ship from 22 kamikaze attacks.

There may be a possibility for a voice actor if the movie goes ahead.

USS Laffey is currently a museum ship at Patriots Point in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, alongside two other US National Historic Landmarks: the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown and Submarine USS Clamagore.  This should be good for any future wargamming promos and also ship visits by staff.

It's technically not a Gearing variant. Gearing is the extended cab version of Allen M. Sumner. :)

Also the class is in the game as Yue Yang (RIP) already.
