destroyer classes were commonly known by the year they were designed. The Zerstörer
1934A class destroyers were a group of twelve destroyers that were laid down between
July and November 1935. They were only partially modified from the design of the
former 1934 class and continued their progenitors' limited fortitude and magazine
capacity factors which added to the heavy German losses at the Second Battle of
Narvik. Five made it to the end of the war.
The ships in this class were
Paul Jakobi, Theodor Riedel, Hermann Schoemann, Bruno Heinemann,
Wolfgang Zenker, Hans Lody, Bernd von Arnim, Erich Giese, Erich Koellner, Friedirch
Ihn, Erich Steinbrinck, and Friedrich Eckoldt
