Hatsuyuki-class Destroyer

From Canadian Power Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The Hatsuyuki-class destroyer is a class of Japanese destroyer, serving with the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF). It was the third generation of general purpose destroyers, though like its predecessor, the Yamagumo-class destroyers, the main task is anti-submarine warfare. The class was completed between 1982 and 1987. Due to its size it would be more appropriately classed as a frigate.
