The two drawings for Design 7D for the Farragut class destroyers. This drawing for Design 7D used Measure 31 colors: dull black (BK) and ocean gray (5-O) with a deck pattern of deck blue (20-B) and ocean gray (5-O). The date of this drawing was not indicated but was probably late 1943.
A Design 7D drawing was attached to the July 15, 1943, memo to PacFleet for the DD-381 Somers class of destroyers. On August 19, 1943, it appeared for the Fletcher class destroyers. Design 7D was redrawn for the Farragut class destroyers, the Gamble class light minelayers and for the Chandler class high speed minesweepers; it was worn by, at least, USS Gamble (DM-15), USS Sicard (DM-21) and USS Hamilton (DMS-18). This design was also slightly modified and drawn for the Portland class heavy cruisers on March 21, 1944, using three colors and worn by the cruisers USS Portland (CA-33) and USS Indianapolis (CA-35) and it was worn by the battleship USS West Virginia (BB-48).
