     Looks like torpedo tube installation although these vessels were reputedly equipped as minelayers

    This is probably the Vouga which was launched at the end of January 1933 and commisioned on 12 June. Lima wasn't commissioned until 9 October that year

    The Douro class vessel was modelled on the British destroyer Ambuscade and is probably either 'Lima' or 'Vouga'. Both these vessels were built by Yarrow shipbuilders. Four other Douro class destroyers were built in Portugal but engined by Yarrow
