[A masterpiece destroyer boasting high speed and heavy lightning equipment] A destroyer that was the cornerstone of the Japanese Navy's proud torpedo squadron. Shimakaze was completed in May 1943 as a new ship that will carry the next generation. It is equipped with a high-temperature, high-pressure steam turbine engine that produces an output of 75,000 horsepower on a hull of approximately 3,000 tons. It recorded the fastest sea trial speed of 40.9 knots for a Japanese ship at that time, and was proud of its high attack power equipped with three 12.7 cm twin guns and three five twin torpedo launchers. The first team was the Kiska Island withdrawal operation in July 1943. After that, he changed to the Southern Front and fought hard by taking advantage of high-speed performance. The final battle was a transport operation in Ormoc Bay, Leyte Island in November 1944. An island-style destroyer that could not mass-produce high-temperature and high-pressure cans due to the trend of the times when the main force of naval warfare was replaced by aircraft carriers and aircraft, and the deterioration of the war situation, and the same type of ship was never built. Even so, Shimakaze unfortunately demonstrated its performance in a short life, and has made its name in history as the highest peak of the fastest and strongest destroyer.
