?* Upgraded Torpedoes have 8km range.+
?* Concealment is excellent.+
?* Excellent hitpoint pool for a destroyer - surpasses even the tier 5 IJN destroyer.+
?* Great top speed and mobility in general.+
?*Outguns it's Tier Two destroyer counterpart, the Sampson, with better alpha damage, and faster rate of fire.+
? +
?'''Cons'''+
?* Very Weak armour.+
?* AA guns are mainly for show and will rarely shoot anything down.+

?The Umikaze is a rather noob friendly ship, having a fast torpedo reload rate, and a relatively large hitpool for a destroyer. A very simple word of advice, do not fire your guns unless absolutely necessary. Also, one should get the Torpedo Servicing Commander upgrade, which reduces the reload time of torpedoes and torpedo bombers should you transfer him to a carrier. <br />+
?The Umikaze would appear to be a very unbalanced ship, having higher hp than the Sampson, better guns, and torpedos that can sink the Sampson in one hit. However, it's steering and engines are very, very easily taken out. In that case, drop smoke. Do not waste smoke while running, as you can obviously outrun anything. Smoke should only be used if you are being hunted, and in danger of dying.+

?|History=+
?海風 ''Umikaze "Seawind"''<br />The Umikaze-class destroyers (海風型駆逐艦 Umikazegata kuchikukan) were a class of two destroyers of the Imperial Japanese Navy. They were the first large destroyers designed for open ocean service to be built in Japan.<br />+
?<br />+
?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.<br />+
?<br />+
?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.<br />+
