Commissioned in 1939, Fletcher was completed and ready for battle in 1942. Weighing in at 2,050 ton and extending 376.5 feet long, she was the leading ship in her class.

This class of larger, more versatile, multipurpose destroyers was replacing the Benson/Livermore type ships.

She traveled for combat carrying 5 5" mounts for anti-aircraft defense and small targets, one double 40mm Bofor Anti-Aircraft gun and 6 single 20mm Anti-Aircraft guns.

On deck she carried 10 loaded torpedo tubes, 6 double K guns, 2 depth charge roller racks and full ECM complement.

The Fletcher Class Destroyers used twin turbines to cut through the water with ease. Yielding 30,000hp, which propelled her up to 35 knots of maximum speed.

Fletcher survived the war and was kept in reserve as part of a mobilization force. She was converted into a destroyer escort in 1948 and served proudly until she retired in 1969.

A long life was fitting of such a momentous vessel.

As is suiting of a ship with such national historical significance, our realistic Fletcher ship models are not to be compared with the machine made import versions.

We build each one by hand in the USA using only professional grade materials.

The airbrushed camouflage paint on this hull is for accurate representation of the original.

She was painted this way to make her more difficult to be seen by both enemy submarines and aircraft.
