All the U.S. destroyers in what are commonly known as the "1,000-tonners" are under rated for Range, in SRGW.

This includes the Paulding / Monaghan (DD-22 /-42) class, Smith (DD-17_ and Cassin (DD-43) class ships.

Each should have a range of 3,000 n. miles at 15-knots (SR standard) or 4,630-km.

Currently, most are rated for 2,500-km. - big difference.

Thanks for considering. :-)
