Australian Daring Class Destroyers, HMAS Vampire [D11], and livery for HMAS Vendetta [D08].
HMAS Vampire was the third of three Australian-built Daring class destroyers serving in the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). One of the first all-welded ships built in Australia, she was constructed at Cockatoo Island Dockyard between 1952 and 1959, and was commissioned into the RAN a day after completion.
She was one of the last all gun Destroyers in the Royal Australian Navy. Regularly required to do plane guard duties for HMAS Melbourne II with her sister ships HMAS Vendetta [D08] and HMAS Voyager [D04].
Armed with 6 x 40mm Bofors guns in 2 single and 2 dual mount turrets for air defence, and 6x 4.5in Guns in the 3 main turrets.
HMAS Voyager not included as she was bisected by the HMAS Melbourne in 1964 and was resting on the bottom of the Tasman Sea when these 2 ships had their mid-life refits in 1970 (as modeled here).
Livery is included for her sister ship HMAS Vendetta [D08].
