The largest ships built by Japan since the end of the Second World War, these "helicopter destroyers" are every bit as large as the aircraft carriers of other nations. Currently, they only operate rotary wing aircraft or tilt rotors. Hyuga herself, commissioned in 2009, hasn't seen any combat but did help with disaster relief after the 2011 earthquake in Japan and has been used to help keep a close eye on North Korea's nuke program. Kit features detailed parts and full decals for DDH-181.
