Destroyer Mariz e Barros was launched  20/12/40 and commissioned November 43. They were built based on Mahan Class Destroyers. Soon after completion in US arsenals, one 5 inch gun and torpedo tube were removed to improve stability when extra A/A guns and radar were fitted. In the 1960's a Sea Cat missile system was fitted in this ship.
