An experimental "cruiser type" destroyer with increased displacement. The ship was equipped with very powerful propulsion, making Shimakaze faster than the majority of her contemporary ships of the same type. Shimakaze was second to none in terms of torpedo armament. The first and only destroyer of the Imperial Japanese Navy to be equipped with quintuple torpedo tubes.

Player Opinion

Performance

pros

  • very long torpedo range (15/20km)
  • lots of torpedoes (15)
  • absurd torpedo spread damage (300,000)
  • surprisingly decent artillery

cons

  • very low rounds per minute (0.4)
  • dies in 2-3 hits from everything but destroyers or low tier cruisers


Historical Info

The Shimakaze (島風) was laid down on the 8th of August 1941 in the Maizuru Naval Arsenal, a IJN-ran shipyard which specializes in vessels destroyer class and smaller. The new design combines large size, firepower, and heavy torpedo armament (one could argue that these armament heavy designs are influenced by IJN’s Decisive Battle Doctrine or Kantai Kessen) with incredible speed up to 40-knots.


The IJN originally intended to develop 16 additional destroyers of this experimental class, but hampered with the ill-fated Battle of Midway (1942) and Japan’s limited resources and small industrial capacity, the project was deemed too expensive thus cancelled and passed on to an upgraded Akizuki design. However, that too was cancelled due to a string of Japanese defeats that followed shortly after Midway.

Nevertheless, the original Shimakaze prototype was continued to be built (though with many delays) and was completed on the 10th of May 1943 and fitted with state of the art technology that the IJN could provide at the time. But, it was very difficult decision for the IJN on where to place her into their formations, thus she became more or less independent of destroyer squadrons.

In service, she saw her first sortie in July 1943 as the radar guide and screen flagship for the Kiska evacuation under the cover of fog. Two days later, the Americans forces shelled rocky island with thousands of rounds and landed over 34,000 men, only to discover that the Japanese had disappeared. In early 1944, the Shimakaze underwent a refit, losing one of her 127mm gun battery in exchange for 28 25mm AA guns to counter the ever increasing role of naval aircrafts in the pacific theatre.

Refitted, the Shimakaze rendezvous with the Combined Fleet, operating as an attachment destroyer and was deployed with Yamato and Musashi during the Battle of the Philippine Sea in the attempt to reinforce Biak in June 1944. However in the Battle of Leyte Gulf several months later, the Shimakaze never participated and end up just picking survivors from the sunken Musashi.

Days later, even though Shimakaze was part of the fleet which that surprised the American escort carriers off Samar on 25 October 1944, she was placed away from the fight again. This time to pick up survivors from the heavy cruiser Maya which sunk a day earlier by torpedoes from the American submarine Dace. Her crowded decks and made it nearly impossible for any of her main armaments (particularly her torpedoes) to be used.

Though an impressive destroyer of its time, the Shimakaze was lost on the 11th of November 1944, where she helped escort a troop convoy to Ormoc to reinforce the remaining Japanese forces in the Philippines. Fighting against hundreds of carrier planes from the American Task Force 38 under, the Shimakaze and three other destroyers were sunk with its convoy.
