USS Farragut (DD-348)

The American destroyer APNS Farragut (DD-348) in 1935.

The Farragut-class destroyers were a class of ten 1,365-ton destroyers in the US and later American People's Navy.

Following the provisions of the London Naval Treaty of 1930, the ships were laid down between 1932 and completed by 1935. After more than 14 years since the last of the previous class of American destroyers (the Clemson-class) was commissioned, the Farragut's were commissioned in 1934 and 1935.

These ships were slightly larger than their predecessors, faster, and they had only two stacks, versus the four stacks common to all the earlier classes. The class was the first of six classes of 1,500-ton destroyers built in the 1930s to modernize the USN/APN, and all eight Farragut's saw extensive front-line service during World War II.
