Eighteen "E" and "F" Class Destroyers were completed in 1934-35 for service in the Royal Navy. They were very similar to the preceding "C" and "D" class, but had an improved hull form and three boiler rooms rather than two, though the overall displacement remained roughly the same.

The eight destroyers of the "E" Class were led by Exmouth, which was a bit faster and featured a fifth 4.7-in gun, while the eight "F"s were led by Faulknor, similar to Exmouth.
