Pictures from USS Edson

From Redditor shaewyn

The USS Edson’s a Forrest Sherman class DD, built in 1956 (which puts her as a contemporary of the high-tier Russian cruisers in game). She’s got 3 5″ guns, which auto load, and have a rate of fire of 40 rounds a minute and were computer guided. (as a comparison, the Edson’s 3×5″ guns could put 1.6x as many shells down-range as a Benson’s 5×5″ guns could every minute.)
