interesting find.

As a side note, for those who have read Taylor Anderson's Destroyermen military-sf-alternate-Earth series, the USS Jacob Jones is a sister ship to the USS Walker as originally configured (the novels take some liberties, as the real Walker never served in WWII as a fighting ship and would not have been equipped as described— making the books' setting an alternate Earth of an already alternate Earth… but I digress.)

Thanks for the link.

I imagine the author found it easier to take liberties with a ship that didn't serve during WWII.
