The Takanami-class destroyers are a class of Japanese guided-missile and ASW destroyer, serving with the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF). It is an evolution of the Murasame-class destroyers, fitted with a larger 127 mm gun, a Mk 41 vertical launch missile system, and an improved fire control system, as well as a new sonar system. The older Sea Sparrow anti-air missile has been replaced by the new Evolved Sea Sparrow ESSM (RIM-162) missile in these new-construction warships. All ships in the class are named for World War II destroyers
