MKL-200105 Morskaya Kollektsia N5 2001: The destroyers of Akitsyki type magazine

The project of the specialised destroyer purposed for the antiaircraft defence of the high speed aviation formations of the Japanese Imperial Navy was developed long before the triumphal march of the operative formation of Admiral Nagumo on the Pacific and Indian oceans. The idea of a such ship creation was the sequent of the most far-seeing evaluations of the increasing power of the marine (first of all of the deck one) aviation. They were made on the base of the Japanese Air Forces aircrafts' combat activity analysis during the war in China.
But the historical realities were turned out so that the lead ship of the series, "Akitsyki", was involved into activity on June, 1942. That was a week later then the date of the battle near Midway islands. And only eight ships of such type from the twelve ones, that were given to be a part of the Navy in action, were able to smell powder. And only five ones were used as they were purposed for, means in the antiaircraft orders of the aircraft carriers. The united Navy received four "akitsyki" type ships (the standard complement of one destroyers' division) by April, 1943. And only in a brief period, from July to November of 1944 the six ships of such type were in concurrent activities. That's why the special destroyers of antiaircraft defence could not realise themselves in such quality as they were forethought and created for. At the same time they fully confirmed the fair name of Japanese destroyers while taking part all together with the "classical" ships of that grade at the hard night battles for Solomon Islands. They tried the bitter taste of destruction on Philippine Sea and the crash of Japanese Navy in a fight for Philippines. And they also saw off the gigantic "Yamato" to the last raid. As they were involved nearly in all significant operations of the Navy in a period from the end of 1942 and the beginning of the 1945, "akitsyki" type ships verified their right to be considered one of the best destroyers in a period of the Second World War. And the detailed post war division of the last four ships of "Akitsyki" type, that were still in function, by the countries-winners (USA, USSR, Great Britain and China) one more time emphasizes the interest showed for those ships by their ex-opponents.
