IJN Oyodo Kure

The IJN Ōyodo design was approved in 1939 as an enlarged and improved version of the Agano-class. It was designed to be the flagship for attack groups of submarines. Initially, plans were made for eight vessels in the class. However, only two ships were actually authorised, of which only one, Ōyodo, was laid down.

Although the same general hull design as for the Agano was adopted, the armour protection was reduced and the armament differed both in layout and weaponry:

- 6x 15.5 cm/60 3rd Year Type guns
- 8x 10 cm Type 98
- 44x 25 mm Type 96

The Ōyodo-class ships were intended to be scouting cruisers and hence the entire deck of the ship aft of the superstructure was devoted to aircraft facilities including a heavy-duty 45 m catapult. In 1944 this catapult was exchanged for the shorter (18 m), standard type and the hangar converted to accommodate Fleet Headquarters staff. During this refit several 25 mm AA guns were added. This variant is also included in FHSW 0.5!
