Tenryū was a tough Japanese light cruiser commissioned just after the First World War and used in WWII. She served well during the Second Sino-Japanese war then, during WWII, fought at Wake Island, off Guadalcanal, and extensively in the waters around New Guinea. She was sunk by USS Albacore off Madang. The vessels of the Tenryū class were new designs intended to lead destroyer flotillas. Long, thin, and fast for cruisers, they were lightly armed, but equipped with a triple-tube torpedo launcher. Kit features full hull, photo-etched parts, and full decals.
