For the modern human navy, determining the type of ship is a technical task. For example, we all know how to define a frigate and a destroyer, what is the difference between them? For many people, this question is unclear.
Today we will look at this problem
First, let us look at the definition of frigate and destroyer. As the name implies, the frigate must be used for escort, and the destroyer is used for expulsion. This concept first appeared before the First World War. At that time, the British and German navies were the most powerful of the European navies. In the era of hardships and guns, the main type of warship was battleship, not the current aircraft carrier.
