This class of cruiser was one of Japan's very best. They were very tough an ably crewed. Chokai had an excellent reputation in the Imperial navy and took part in numerous operations.
Akitzuki was a one of a kind prototype. She had gas fired boilers and special turbines that gave her a top end speed of over 40 knots. She was designed to be a fast escort for aircraft carriers but her fast firing dual purpose main armament made her a formidable surface combatant.
Pound for pound, the Kagero class destroyer was one of the best in the world at the outset of the war. She was an exceptionally well balanced armament that made her very capable in the roles of surface combatant, AAW or ASW. Her twin quadruple torpedo mounts made her very dangerous in the early war battles fought in and around the Solomon islands.
I was wrong- Akitsuki class destroyers were new construction that began arriving in 1942. They were oriented toward being fast escorts for heavy ships and were balanced with an anti-aircraft heavy armament.
Shimakaze was a one of a kind prototype. She had gas fired boilers and special turbines that gave her a top end speed of over 40 knots. She was designed to be a fast escort for aircraft carriers but her fast firing dual purpose main armament made her a formidable surface combatant.
The early Mogami class had 6" guns in triple mounts to comply with the Washington Naval Agreement but they were later replaced in 1937 with the 8" dual mounts typical of Japanese heavy cruisers of the era. The Mogami class cruisers served throughout the war. Mikuma was destroyed during the Battle of Midway and Mogami was badly damaged. The remaining three Mogamis Anti-aircraft capability was improved by refit.
