    Exclamation Yuugumo class K2 around Christmas 2017?



    A destroyer of the "Mainstay of Mainstays" class will get a remodel before the end of year but after Christmas.

    Many people are already trying to guess this is from the Yuugumo class, but while I know "Mainstay of mainstays" is from Yuugumo's mouth, I don't think we can exclude the Kagerou class or even Shimakaze at this stage. I will be really surprised that Tanaka et al. is looking to get a Yuugumo class K2 before the Kagerou class get one first(#)...


    IF it's really the Yuugumo class, I'm pretty sure Naganami is way high on the list with her rich historic record, participation in Leyte Gulf(*), fairly high notability in KC and ease of dropping in regular maps (5-4). However I think the others might still have a chance (particularly Asashimo/Kiyoshimo, though even Fujinami was speculated elsewhere) so let's say that no obvious favorites are there (yet).


    (*) Well not quite as she was turned back midway to escort the knocked out Takao away and missed the Battle of Samar.....
    (#) Had it be the Kagerou class my long time favorite was on Shiranui K2, which might be still in the fight particularly after her "reborn" 2 months ago.

    Well, obviously there is not enough proof yet, but if I am to place my bet now, I will pick Kiyoshimo. Two indirect proofs:

    1. The maint will launch after Christmas, and Kiyoshimo was sunk on the 26 Dec.

    2. She is one of the DD that participates in Leyte (member of Suzuki fleet to be exact).


    The sexiest bridge ever made.

    Even though I prefer running Kagerou-class over mainstream Kai2 destroyers, I've come to accept it'll be a while before we get Kagerou-class Kai2s.

    The Yuugumo-class are fine DDs though so I welcome it if they do get a second remodel.

    @211303 I'm with you. I think Musashi being one of the center parts of the next event is also a hint pointing in the direction of Kiyoshimo.

    New hints here:

    1. The dd is famous.

    2. The dd has a lot of sister ship sank before her.

    3. She was sunk near Leyte island.

    Now, that heavily hints on naganami imo. Shimakaze is sunk there too and she is definitely famous, but she got no sister ships.

    We also have fujinami and hayashimo sunk in the area, but none is as famous as naganami.

    Ormoc Bay is literally on the coast of Leyte, so it is as close as it gets.
