Asashio, lead vessel of the Asashio class, was one of the exceptionally large, powerful destroyers laid down by the Japanese in the interwar period. It was equipped with six 12.7cm guns but, like with many Japanese warships, its chief armament was Japan's superior torpedo technology. Asashio fought at Midway, Guadalcanal, and other places before being sunk at the Battle of the Bismarck Sea. Kit features decals for Asashio as part of the 8th Destroyer Squadron in December, 1941.
