6 20mm Oerlikon AA guns were added as they became available.

These were later replaced with 40mm Bofors AA guns.

Surface and air warning radars were added as described for the British ships.

The  British Tribal class was originally a response to the powerful Japanese Fubukis and duplicated their twin turret gun armament. The Australian Navy decided in 1939 to produce several units at the Cockatoo Island shipyard at Sydney. However, some important refinements were made to the original Tribal design. Six units were ordered but only three were laid down due to production delays arising from the yard's inexperience with such complex ships. As it was, the machinery was constructed in Britain.
