Type of ship[edit]

The type of ship is wrong. The Dutch classify this ship as a frigate (fregat), not a destroyer (torpedobootjager). Many English sources often mention it as destroyer though. I think the Dutch classification should prevail though. Search the web, any Dutch link you will find will classify it as a frigate. The hulldesignation F-806 clearly shows it is classified as frigate. Dutch destroyers used a hullclassification starting with D. Looking through the history section of the official Dutch Navy site it is shown also that these ships were classified as frigates, not destroyers.--Fogeltje 16:45, 6 July 2007 (UTC)
