The Akizuki class destroyers were the largest, most modern and successful destroyers of the Japanese Navy in the World War II. They were 134 feet long and had a combat uniform displacement of 3,700 tons. They were built in 1940 and were intended primarily as an escort for the Japanese aircraft carriers to protect them from enemy planes. Their armanent consisted of eight fast-firing long-range multi-purpose guns and a vast number of smaller AA weapons.

As they had a radar, they could also fight at night. These large destroyers were often confused with cruisers by their opponents. This is due to the curved smooth deck, four distinctively shaped twin towers and the arrangement of the structures. In fact, they were used in some cases as flagships of Japanese Navy Battle Groups. The Akizukis were involved to every major Japanese naval operation from mid-1942, including the battles of Guadalcanal, where they secured supplies to the Japanese troops, in the Solomon Islands as a carrier escort and finally at Leyte Gulf.

They proved to be an excellent and versatile destroyers, whose anti-aircraft armament was constantly reinforced. Six of the twelve completed until the war ended Akizuki class destroyers were lost in the course of hostilities. The surviving six ships were further used by other countries for many years after the war.

Fuyutsuki (冬月) was an Akizuki-class destroyer of the Imperial Japanese Navy. Her name means "Winter Moon". She participated on the last mission of the Japanese battleship Yamato (6–7 April 1945). She sank the crippled destroyer Kasumi with two torpedoes after taking aboard her crew. She was one of the few surviving ships, even though lightly damaged by 127 mm rockets and bombs. Her own losses were 12 dead and 12 injured. On 20 August 1945, Fuyutsuki hit a mine at Moji, Kyūshū, suffering heavy damage to her stern. She surrendered unrepaired and without armament.

The tasks of Fuyuzuki in Forgotten Hope Secret Weapon are identical to those in the main game. By the generally improved air defense you can also fight effectively against medium and as well heavy bombers. The torpedoes ensure that you can even damage larger vessels , which is particularly important for individual operations against enemy aircraft carriers.

You have no chance in direct competition with a battleship, even with the torpedoes, as one salvo from the main artillery sank the Hatsuzuki.
