JDS Makinami (DD 112)

The RJS Makinami (DD-112) at sea.

The Takanami-class destroyers are a class of Japanese guided-missile and ASW destroyer, serving with the Republic of Japan Navy (RoJN). It is an evolution of the Murasame-class destroyers, fitted with a larger 127 mm gun, a 32-cell vertical launch missile system, and an improved fire control system, as well as a new ASDIC system. The older Thunderbolt anti-air missile has been replaced by the new Super Thunderbolt anti-air missile in these new-construction warships. All ships in the class are named for World War II destroyers.
