General Information

The Henry class is a ship class of eight air warfare destroyers built for the Royal Kuthern Navy. Although the designation "Air Warfare Destroyer" is used to describe ships dedicated to the defence of a naval force (plus assets ashore) from aircraft and missile attack, the Kuthern destroyers operate in anti-surface, anti-submarine, and naval gunfire support roles.
