Naval Projects / Re: never realized projects of Japanese destroyers ww2
« Last post by Tzoli on Yesterday at 01:20:31 pm »
Well Shimakaze's engines were first prototyped in IJN Amatsukaze and based on those refined for Shimakaze.
I think many WW2 Japanese project data was lost during the war when the USAF bombed their cities with incendiary bombs.
We lack knowledge of the pre Yamato (A-140) project numbers as well as the 9 project number following it to the A-150 aka Super Yamato.
And I start to question that the B-65 Battlecrusier / Large Cruiser / Super Type A Cruiser would had a Nelson style bridge as depicted in naval books.

The info on their cruiser projects likewise scarce so oes some of their large carrier projects.

Hi Tzoli
thanks for this very interesting information! much of this information is new to me.
For example I did not know that the Japanese navy had plans to build further development types of the Akizuki and Matsu class destroyers.
 Further I Always thought that the Shimakaze was the dead end of this destroyer class only ment for trying out new propulsing engines and hull shapes,any way as I early in my replay said this is amazing interesting info!
Some additional info here...
