An evolution of the D-class destroyers, the HML Trafford shares much in common with its sister vessels. The most glaring difference is the reinforced hull, an experiment in adding a layer of Krupp Armour over the base Harvey shielding used by the other D-class leviathans. It is hoped this will increase the vessel's survivability without adding substantially to the cost. The price of this added protection is a noticeable reduction in the vessel's speed, and it remains to be seen whether the trade-off is worth it.

The up-armoured HML Trafford has yet to test its new staying power, having taken on a fresh crew straight from the classrooms of Whale Island. Unlike the majority of D-class captains, Ensign Clinton Parks has an exemplary record, and his crew of novices are likewise unblemished. Whether this signals a shift in Admiralty thinking regarding the so-called Thug of the Sky remains to be seen.[1]
