the Hamakaze class was a larger and more powerful version of the previous Uranami Class, as a result of being built after Uranami Class destroyers the hamakaze class rectified many of the issues seen in the previous class of destroyer, the main one of which being the stability issues, the class was comprised of 8 vessels all of which were identical to each other, the main Armament of the hamakaze class was not too different from the preceding Destroyer classes, this being three 100 mm guns however the torpedo Armament was a step up in terms of amount of torpedoes carried, as built the hamakaze had to triple torpedo launchers for the time when she was commissioned this was a rarity among destroyers of that time.


Ordered: 19 March 1912
Laid down: 5 November 1913
Launched: 28 April 1915
Commissioned: 29 February 1916
Decommissioned: 24 August 1931
Struck: 28 December 1931
Fate: sold for scrapped scrap
Status: scrapped 1932



General characteristics

Displacement: (1,200 tons) (1,799 tons full load)
Length: 93.8 m (308 ft)
Beam: 8.8 m (29 ft)
Draft: 3.3 m (11 ft)
Installed power: 2-shaft geared turbines, 6 water tube boiler, 21,604 shp
Speed: 36 knots (41 mph; 67 km/h)

Armament: as commissioned 1916-Hamakaze
3 × single TYPE 5 10cm (3.9 inches guns)
2 × triple TYPE 9 53cm (20.9 inches torpedoes)


Armament: as sunk 1934-Urakaze
3 × single TYPE 20 12cm (5 inches guns)
3 x twin TYPE 25 3cm (1.1 autocannons)
1 × triple TYPE 9 53cm (20.9 inches torpedoes)



Armour:
Uniform 15 millimetres across the entire ship

As a result of being commissioned during the First World War, hamakaze was painted in standard type three mod 1 camouflage with the rest of her sister's been commissioned in wartime also receiving this paint scheme,hamakaze herself will the only one of her class to take part in the Battle of Jutland, during the battle she managed to sink a German destroyer however the exact identity of this Destroyer was never ascertained, but it is believed to have been the Destroyer V1 or the Destroyer G7, the rest of Her Sisters spend most of their time patrolling around the Indian Ocean and the Pacific in search of German commerce Raiders, with the Wars end in 1918 the hamakaze along with many other Zipang Navy vessels returned to home Waters.
[ img ]
with the signing of Washington naval treaty in 1922 several of the ships for placed into the reserve Fleet while others were selected for modernisation, this modernization entailed the replacement of their 100mm guns with the newer type 20 127 mm naval gun, and the torpedo mounts being replaced with newer enclosed ones, as well as the addition of a single twin type 25 30 mm anti aircraft gun, as well as a rangefinder for the new 5 inch main battery, the ships that were placed in the reserve however would be scrapped by the end of the 1920s, the ships that remained in commission would quickly be outclassed a newer and larger destroy classes as a result by 1932, Urakaze was the only one of the class left in commission, however her fate would be much different from the rest of Her Sisters, she would go on to be sunk in the Japanese surprise attack on Tajima naval Arsenal along with many other older vessels on the 4th of September 1934.

A very nice destroyer design, good to see a Japanese-style destroyer with decent freeboard and seakeeping.

Very nice destroyers! Specially the modernized ones (which still had the flavor of the previous era), and the camo scheme of hamakaze is impressive! Cheers.

the Nayoro class was designed to replace to replace the 6 older light cruisers that were built four the zipang navy in 1880s, as a result of being the first class of modern Cruise have built in over 20 years the navel staff requested help from British contractors in designing the ships Hull and it's engines, the Nayoro was commission on the 2nd of January 1909, has commissioned she carried three 140mm guns, as well as eight 45mm anti torpedo boat guns, and a pair of twin torpedo tubes.

Ordered: 19 August 1903
Laid down: 22 March 1904
Launched: 10 October 1907
Commissioned: 2 January 1909
Decommissioned: 26 February 1922
Struck: 21 April 1923
Fate: converted to Minesweeper
Status: converted 1925



General characteristics

Displacement: (4,200 tons) 5,100 tons full load)
Length: 130.5 m (428 ft)
Beam: 14 m (45 ft)
Draft: 4.2 m (14 ft)
Installed power: 4-shaft geared turbines, 10 water tube boiler 20,100 shp
Speed: 28 knots (32 mph; 51 km/h)

Armament: as commissioned 1909-Nayoro
3 x single TYPE 5 14cm (5.5 inches guns)

Armament: As decommissioned 1922-Hatakaze
3 x single TYPE 5 14cm (5.5 inches guns)
1 × single TYPE 5 10cm (3.9 inches guns)

when the Nayoro was commissioned she was found to be effective but slightly flawed design for what she was designed to do, on her sea trials however several strange incidents happened, the main one of which being that her guns were extremely inaccurate, and that her steering Gear was never fully responsive, after her sea trials a full inspection was made of her steering Gear and her guns were swapped out for different ones, but these two issues remained prominent for the rest her career, in 1914 all three of the class were painted into the type 3 camouflage, 9 of November 1914 the Ishikari along with the Australian Cruiser HMAS Sydney received the message that the German Cruiser Emden was attacking the communication station on the island of Direction, when the two ships arrived they quickly engaged the German light Cruiser the battle was short-lived as both cruises outmatched the German by a significant degree, they eventually forced the German ship to run aground and and subsequently the Emden crew surrendered to the two ships, after the end of hostilities the three light Cruiser returned to home Waters, all three of them needing major repairs due to them being worn out through the course of the war.
[ img ]
with the signing of the Washington naval treaty in 1922 the three light cruises were decommissioned and placed them to reserve however they weren't sent for scrap due to them having received the refit in 1919, so in 1923 it was decided by the naval staff that all three would be sent be converted to minesweepers with all three of them be reconditioned in 1925 as minesweepers.

In the 1922 version, you have the torpedo showing but the tubes have been removed.

I would be tempted to add another couple of 5.5" in broadside positions just behind the bridge at the forecastle break. Three main guns just looks a bit light. Otherwise you could do the 3x5.5" and a broadside of say 6x4".

The equivalent British Boadicea class were 9-10 x 4", then the Town class went to 2x6" and 8-10x4", so a bit more armament would not go amiss.

I have enjoyed watching your skills get better the more drawings you do. Keep up the good work!!
