The Somers-class destroyers were intended to be Destroyer-Leaders, and were the U.S. equivalent of the British Tribal-class destroyers. They had three banks of torpedo tubes and eight 5-inch guns in four turrets. Unfortunately, as in the Tribal-class, their main guns were not placed in dual-purpose gun mounts, so they could not be used effectively against aircraft. As a result, most of the vessels of this class spent the majority of their time operating in the Atlantic.
