  ipedia.com: Destroyer Article   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
In naval terminology, a destroyer is a fast and maneuverable yet long-endurance warship intended to escort larger vessels in a fleet or battle group and defend them against smaller, short-range attackers.
This led to an equally rapid evolution of the destroyer during the war, which quickly equipped with depth charges and sonar for countering this new threat.
Destroyers (with a DD hull classification symbol) primarily perform anti-submarine warfare duty while guided missile destroyers (DDGs) are multi-mission (anti-submarine, anti-air, and anti-surface warfare) surface combatants.
