IJN Wakatake Class Destroyers
The Wakatake class destroyers were essentially modified Momi class ships with a deeper draft. The class was originally planned to consist of twenty-three vessels, but due to the Washington Naval Treaty, the final number was reduced to eight. The Wakatake class was the last class to be rated second class and all future destroyers were designed larger henceforth.
