Kaga, the new Japanese Helicopter Destroyer (24DDH) DDH-184 護衛艦


 

The sister of the Izumo-class Helicopter Destroyer DDH-183 (22DDH) has already received her name: The name is Kaga, which is the same as the fleect carrier Kaga that operated in the combined fleet during the Pacific War together with the carrier Akagi. The Helicopter Destroyer Kaga DDH-184 護衛艦 (24DDH) will be similar to the Izumo DDH-183 and will contribute to the anti-submarine and command and control operations of the JMSDF. The Kaga 24DDH was launched today, 27th August 2015, and it is expected to be commissioned by the JMSDF on early March 2017.

For those that would like to construct the ship as model kit I suggest the model from Hasegawa at 1/700 scale: See here in amazon by approximately $39.
However, currently there is available the DDH-183 Izumo, which has similar features. I expect they can produce the DDh-184 soon.
