"Scheme "B-III" - Destroyer Study"
Preliminary design plan prepared for the General Board as part of the process leading to the Allen M. Sumner (DD-692) class design.
This 30 September 1941 plan, for a 2180-ton (standard displacement) ship, provides two twin 5"/38 dual-purpose gun mounts (one forward and one atop the after deck house), four twin 40mm anti-aircraft guns, and two triple torpedo tube mountings.
The original plan is in the 1939-1944 "Spring Styles Book" held by the Naval Historical Center.
