Información histórica sobre el destructor HMS Hotspur H01 (clase H)

The G and H class destroyers were a class of twenty-four destroyers of the Royal Navy (two later transferred to the Royal Canadian Navy and one to the Polish Navy) launched in 1935–1939. They served in World War II and sixteen were lost, with a seventeenth being written off as a constructive total loss. Other ships were built for the navies of Argentina, Brazil, and Greece.

Hotspur was laid down by Scotts Shipbuilding & Engineering Company, Greenock, in Scotland on 27 February 1935, launched on 23 March 1936 and commissioned on 29 December 1936. Hotspur participated in the First Battle of Narvik in April 1940, the Battle of Cape Matapan in March 1941 and the evacuation of Greece in April 1941, and attacked and sank the German submarine U-79 in the Mediterranean north of Sollum while in company with the destroyer Hasty on 23 December 1941. Hotspur was transferred to the Dominican Republic on 23 November 1948 and renamed Trujillo.

A destroyer is a fast and maneuverable yet long-endurance warship intended to escort larger vessels in a fleet, convoy or battle group and defend them against smaller, short-range but powerful attackers.
