Hello All,

I've just discovered that I cannot have my Revell TANEY kit finished as the OWASCO because the OWASCO was not the same class ship as the TANEY and now, I need to do it as the TANEY in 1944.

From the few photos that I have of the TANEY from that time frame, I've determined that she was armed with:

Four single 5-inch/38s in gunhouses

Six single 20-mm guns

As well as the obligatory depth charges

Would that be an accurate assessment?

I just stumbled across your question. If you are still looking for an answer, she had 10 20s. Pix here
