TV Shimayuki Class

TV3513 Shimayuki was built as the 12th and the last ship of DD Hatsuyuki class but it went through a classification change on 18 Mar 1999. While the other Hatsuyuki class ships still play an active part in mobile missions, Shimayuki was the first ship to be changed to a training vessel. There has been no other example of such a rapid change of class. The reason for this is because there has been an increasing demand for more suitable training as the advancement of JMSDF warship technology and systems continues. This is quite different from the previous practices of class change which is done based on the service order.
