This article refers to the entire Type 1936B-class; it is not about an individual vessel.
ww2dbaseThe Type 1936B destroyers were the succeeding design to Type 1936A, retaining the hull, exchanging reverting to the lighter main armament of the earlier Type 1936 to reduce top weight, and adding additional anti-aircraft weaponry. These ships' hulls were divided into 16 watertight compartments and they were fitted with a double bottom that covered 47% of their length amidships. It was originally planned to commission eight of these ships into service, but ultimately only three would serve. One was launched but not commissioned, one was laid down but never launched, and three were cancelled before keel laying. Z35 was the lead ship of this class, launched in Oct 1942 and commissioned in Feb 1944. All three commissioned Type 1936B destroyers served in the Baltic Sea with the 6th Destroyer Flotilla. Two of them were lost to mines, while the third was scuttled at the very end of the war.
