Its History:

The Tribal class, or Afridi class, were a class of destroyers built for the Royal Navy, Royal Canadian Navy and Royal Australian Navy that saw service in World War II. Originally conceived as a failed design for a light fleet cruiser,[1] the Tribals evolved into, fast, powerful destroyers as they are remembered during World War II. They were built to a different concept than other Royal Navy destroyers built up to the time, with more emphasis on guns than torpedoes, and were meant as a response to the new, much larger destroyers being built by potential adversaries.[2] The Tribals were well admired by their crews and the public when they were in service due to their power, often becoming symbols of prestige while in service.[3]

The Tribals were built as a response to the new, heavily armed destroyers that were being built by Japan, Italy, and Germany.[4] As some of the Royal Navy's most modern and powerful escort ships, the Tribal class served with distinction in nearly all theatres of World War II. Only a handful of Royal Navy Tribals survived the war, all of which were subsequently scrapped from hard use, while Commonwealth Tribals continued to serve into the Cold War, serving with distinction in the Korean War. Only one Tribal survives to this day; HMCS Haida, which is now a museum ship in Hamilton Harbour, Ontario, Canada.
