Does anybody have information on the turning radius of British destroyers and escorts? I'm particularly interested in Tribals, Flowers, and J/K/Ms, though data on earlier or later types would also be helpful.

Thus far I've been able to dig up that Buckley-class DEs could turn in a (roughly) 400-yard circle and were considered as exceptionally maneuverable for their size, with Fletcher-class DDs at the opposite extreme, turning in 800 yards or more. So I would expect Tribals and J/K/Ms to hover somewhere in the 500-700 yard region.

As for smaller ships, River-class frigates are listed by a couple of sources as turning in about 500 yards. Another source points at a 200-yard circle for Flower corvettes, but that seems almost unbelievable...
