The Asahio-class destroyers were larger and more capable that the preceding Shiratsuyu class, as Japanese naval architects were no longer constrained by the provisions of the London Naval Treaty. These light cruiser-sized vessels were designed to take advantage of Japan’s lead in torpedo technology, and to accompany the Japanese main striking force and in both day and night attacks against the United States Navy as it advanced across the Pacific Ocean, according to Japanese naval strategic projections.Despite being one of the most powerful classes of destroyers in the world at the time of their completion, none survived the Pacific War.
Asashio will be introduced in the game was a Premium Tier VIII Destroyer. Please Note:All information is from Supertest and it’s subject to change before the final version is released.
