?|History=The Umikaze-class ships were based largely on the Royal Navy Tribal-class destroyers. In terms of displacement, each vessel was almost three times larger than the previous destroyers in the Japanese Navy. Externally, the design retained the four-smokestacks of the Ikazuchi class, however, internally the coal-fired triple expansion steam engines, were replaced with heavy oil-fired Parsons steam turbine engines, which was a first for Japan. The rated power of 20,500 shp gave the vessels a high speed of 33 knots (61 km/h), however fuel consumption severely limited range.<br />+

?pros:+
?* very maneuverable. as good as it counterpart, the Sampson.+
?* good torpedo reload time.+
?* really good torpedo damage. almost 10.000. with 6 torpedo's u can kill anything in your MM, if not 4really fast+
?* really fast!+
?* good torpedo range.+
?* adequate artillery. better then the tier 3 Japanese destroyer, because the guns tun fast enough to track the enemy.+
? +
?cons:+
?* only 4 torpedo tubes. the Sampson has 6 which can turn around and do another strike.+
?* low HP pool. u can only survive one American torpedo, not even a single Japanese.+
?* no AA. (not that u need it that much ;P)+
?* if one torpedo tube gets knocked out, u have only one.+
?* very long for such a low vessel+

?The Umikaze-class destroyers proved to be largely experimental ships. The use of Parsons steam turbines pushed the design to the limits of capability of contemporary engineering and production technology, and the engines were plagued with maintenance issues, as well as tremendous fuel consumption. In an effort to reduce running expenses and to increase range, the boilers were modified from all heavy oil to two heavy oil and four coal-fired boilers. Even with the modification, the Umikaze vessels were largely retained for coastal patrol duties.+

?The Umikaze ships were rated at first-class destroyers on August 28, 1912, and served to June 1, 1930 when both were converted to minesweepers. Both were subsequently scrapped in 1936.+
