“Battle Zone” - Darling Harbour, Sydney

After an awesome afternoon at Darling Harbour in Sydney yesterday, I managed to take this photo of HMAS Vampire, which was a Daring class destroyer and was commissioned for service from 1956-1986.  HMAS Vampire, Australia’s largest museum vessel which is currently on display at the Australian National Maritime Museum in Sydney, is the last of the country’s big gun ships. After this battleship, Australia’s fighting ships were equipped with missile weaponry. The Daring class were the largest destroyers built in Australia. These powerful, fast ships were designed principally for the machinery and weapons of war.
