1936A (Mob) class ships were a sub-class of the destroyers. When war broke out
in 1939, new destroyer classes were no longer required and 12 extra 1936A vessels
were ordered with minor modifications to accelerate construction and conserve
materials. The 15 cm twin turrets were extracted from plan Z, but never constructed
O class battle cruisers. In war service, the engines were more dependable than
in earlier ships but when the war ended, heavy corrosion was found. Seven of this
sub class were made: one was sunk, another two were seriously damaged and not
fixed. The remaining four was war booty assigned to the Allies.
in this class were called
Z-31, Z-32, Z-33, Z-34, Z-37, Z-38, and Z-39.
