The J, K and N class was a class of 24 destroyers of the Royal Navy launched in 1938. They were a return to a smaller vessel, with a heavier torpedo armament, after the Tribal class that emphasised guns over torpedoes. The ships were built in three flotillas or groups, each consisting of eight ships with names beginning with "J", "K" and "N". The flag superior of the pennant numbers changed from "F" to "G" in 1940.

A Total of five N Class Destroyers were transferred from the RN to the RAN and although Commissioned into the RAN and crewed by Australian sailors they remained the property of the Royal Navy. Another three N class Ships were built and two were operated by Holland and one by Poland.
