Armada: Hayate

Hayate is a variant of a Japanese destroyer project developed during World War II. The ship is imagined with a main battery consisting of the modern 127 mm Type 1 dual-purpose guns in twin-turret mounts. In reality, Japanese designers only managed to produce one such gun before the end of the war, which was found by the Americans among the debris of the gun mount workshop at the Kure Naval Arsenal in December 1945. In World of Warships, we’ve recreated this mount in 3D and designed a ship based on a Shimakaze-class destroyer to carry it.
