HMS Parker


This class was also known as the "Improved Marksman class", as their hull form and size was derived from the preceding class. They introduced a number of improvements that would later become standard on every destroyer. Their improved power plant allowed the elimination of one funnel, enabling the engineers to fit a bow with much better protection from heavy weather. Also, the bridge could be moved further aft, and a superfiring gun on the forecastle could be mounted, allowing for a better firing arc. Also, they were the first Royal Navy destroyer-sized vessels to receive central directors, which considerably improved the artillery performance.
