The Blueprints

Plans for Fletcher-class destroyers

Sample blueprint

We have begun the process of posting a complete set of shipyard blueprints for Fletcher-class destroyers that were built at Bath Iron Works. The first 500 or so blueprints, plus indexes, are posted here.

If demand warrants, we will add more blueprints in the coming months.

Until we have an effective database for cataloguing the images, the index and pages will be offered as thumbnails.

Note that some wide blueprints were split into multiple images during microfilming by the National Archives. We have reassembled one such sheet into an interactive blueprint that can be zoomed and panned.

We also have a complete booklet of general plans for another Fletcher-class destroyer, Sigsbee.
