Historical Info: Shimakaze is the only ship in her class, intended as the lead ship in a projected new "Type C" of destroyers. With her design speed of 39 knots, she was the fastest IJN destroyers. Armed with 15 torpedo tubes, each capable of firing the deadly 610 mm Type 93 "Long Lance" torpedo, Shimaze was also the most powerful and dangerous torpedo attacker among all IJN warships. Sunk on November 11, 1944, her wreck was discovered by a Paul Allen-led expedition aboard RV Petrel in Ormoc Bay on December 1, 2017.
