The Battle class destroyers are general purpose escort ships in the Royal Australian Navy, designed to provide anti-air defence, anti-surface defence, and anti-submarine defence to Australian and allied warships, and merchant convoys in wartime. They can also fulfill a ocean patrol function. The Battle class are named after famous Australian battles. They are based on the Spanish F100 AEGIS frigate.
