Description

The Harukaze-class, JDS Harukaze (DD 101), 1956 (はるかぜ, namesake: Spring Wind) is a rank II Japanese destroyer with a battle rating of 4.0 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update "Winged Lions".

The first destroyer class made in Japan after WW2, the JDS Harukaze resembles American destroyers more than its IJN predecessors. It is armed with 3 fast-firing single 127 mm guns with a variety of shells, including HE-VT to take down aircraft, which is also added to with a good AA battery of 2 quad-mount 40 mm Bofors cannons. However, Harukaze lacks torpedoes of any kind, which prevents it from reliably taking down large ships. Compared to other destroyers, Harukaze is relatively slow, having a max speed of only 56 km/h. In many ways, Harukaze is like a larger version of the JDS frigates Akebono and Ikazuchi, having fast-firing dual-purpose guns, a somewhat slow speed, and a secondary armament of only depth charges.

Talk about the vehicle's armour. Note the most well-defended and most vulnerable zones, e.g. the ammo magazine. Evaluate the composition of components and assemblies responsible for movement and manoeuvrability. Evaluate the survivability of the primary and secondary armaments separately. Don't forget to mention the size of the crew, which plays an important role in fleet mechanics. Save tips on preserving survivability for the "Usage in battles" section. If necessary, use a graphical template to show the most well-protected or most vulnerable points in the armour.

Armament

Primary armament

3 х Turret5 inch/38 Mk.12 cannon, mount Mk.30
Ammunition360 rounds
Vertical guidance-15° / 85°

Provide information about the characteristics of the primary armament. Evaluate their efficacy in battle based on their reload speed, ballistics and the capacity of their shells. Add a link to the main article about the weapon: {{main|Weapon name (calibre)}}. Broadly describe the ammunition available for the primary armament, and provide recommendations on how to use it and which ammunition to choose.

Secondary armament

2 х Turret4 x 40 mm Bofors L/60 Mark 2 gun
Ammunition8000 rounds
Belt capacity4 rounds
Fire rate156 shots/min

Some ships are fitted with weapons of various calibres. Secondary armaments are defined as weapons chosen with the control Select secondary weapon. Evaluate the secondary armaments and give advice on how to use them. Describe the ammunition available for the secondary armament. Provide recommendations on how to use them and which ammunition to choose. Remember that any anti-air armament, even heavy calibre weapons, belong in the next section. If there is no secondary armament, remove this section.

Additional armament

Setup 148 x Mk.10 Hedgehog mortar
Setup 28 x Mk.6 mortar depth charge
Setup 348 x Mk.10 Hedgehog mortar
8 x Mk.6 mortar depth charge

The Hedgehog mortars are fixed on the ship, pointing forward and thus makes it hard to utilize it to its fullest potential. The best way to use them would require you to go straight at an enemy ship, before launching the mortars. However, the range on the mortars is not very good either, making it hard to land hits on your enemies without receiving damage.

Usage in battles

Describe the technique of using this ship, the characteristics of her use in a team and tips on strategy. Abstain from writing an entire guide – don't try to provide a single point of view, but give the reader food for thought. Talk about the most dangerous opponents for this vehicle and provide recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of playing with this vehicle in various modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Good anti-air capabilities
  • Has a search and track radar
  • AA guns can shoot down both air and surface targets
  • Main guns reload very quickly to deal considerable damage to your targets

Cons:

  • Poor speed
  • Lacks torpedo launchers

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the ship in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the ship and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Ship-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the ship's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).
