The Kiyoshimo has six 127 mm dual purpose guns that have a high velocity and flat trajectory that enables you to easily hit targets at 10 km. With an Ace crew, you can reduce the reload rate to ~6 seconds, which enables you to win long ranged gunfights. If the Kiyoshimo is caught at close range, it is suggested to take out the enemies turrets and go for crew as these guns lack any type of AP shells.

IJN Kiyoshimo (清霜, "Clear Frost") was a ship of the [[Yugumo (Family)|Yugumo]] class built for the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) during the Second World War. As an incremental improvement over the previous Kagero class, Kiyoshimo had an improved anti-aircraft armament. Completed in May of 1944, Kiyoshimo was present at the Battle of Leyte Gulf, and was ultimately sunk by American land-based bombers in December of that year.

=== Design ===
 +
The Yugumo class was essentially a slightly-improved version of the preceding Kagero class of destroyers, armed with a heavier anti-aircraft armament. They displaced 2110 tons at standard load and had a crew complement of 228 officers and crew. Kiyoshimo carried a main armament of six 127 mm Type 3 guns in three dual turrets - one fore and two aft. These guns were designed with a high maximum rate of elevation to be used as dual-purpose guns, but their slow fire rate and lack of high-angle rangefinding devices severely hampered their effectiveness against aircraft.

 +
Kiyoshimo carried a secondary armament of twenty-eight 25 mm anti-aircraft guns in fourteen single, four triple and one dual turrets. These weapons were the standard anti-aircraft guns for all Japanese warships during the Second World War. Kiyoshimo carried a torpedo armament of two quadruple 610 mm torpedo tube mounts firing the dreaded “Long Lance” torpedoes, along with four reloads. Her anti-submarine armament comprised two depth charge throwers with 36 depth charges.

Kiyoshimo was completed in May of 1944, after which she was immediately sent to join the Japanese forces in the Philippines. She was present at the Battle of Leyte gulf and was hit by an American bomb, and received five near-misses. She assisted the battleship Musashi after she was hit by numerous bombs, and later evacuated the survivors when the battleship sank. She was repaired in Singapore in November of that year. On December 26th, Kiyoshimo was at sea when she was crippled by American bombers, and finished off by a torpedo from the torpedo boat PT-223. 82 men were killed, while the destroyer Asashimo rescued 169 survivors and American PT boats rescued five.

Armament

Primary armament

3 х Turret2 x 127 mm/50 3rd Year Type cannon
Ammunition300 rounds
Vertical guidance-7° / 75°

The Kiyoshimo has six 127 mm dual purpose guns that have a high velocity and flat trajectory that enables you to easily hit targets at 10 km. With an Ace crew, you can reduce the reload rate to ~6 seconds, which enables you to win long ranged gunfights. If the Kiyoshimo is caught at close range, it is suggested to take out the enemies turrets and go for crew as these guns lack any type of AP shells.

Secondary armament

14 х Turret25 mm/60 Type 96 automatic cannon
Ammunition1500 rounds
Belt capacity15 rounds
Fire rate261 shots/min
4 х Turret3 x 25 mm/60 Type 96 automatic cannon
Ammunition4500 rounds
Belt capacity15 rounds
Fire rate261 shots/min
Turret2 x 25 mm/60 Type 96 automatic cannon
Ammunition3000 rounds
Belt capacity15 rounds
Fire rate261 shots/min

The Kiyoshimo is armed with twenty-eight 25 mm anti-aircraft guns as its secondary armament. These are effective at close range as they can throw a lot of shells into the air, but it is recommended to stay near allied ships for air cover as the range of these guns is short.

Anti-aircraft armament

4 х Turret13.2 mm Type 93 machine gun
Ammunition1800 rounds
Belt capacity30 rounds
Fire rate476 shots/min
Main article: Type 93 (13.2 mm)

An important part of the ship's armament responsible for air defence. Anti-aircraft armament is defined by the weapon chosen with the control Select anti-aircraft weapons. Talk about the ship's anti-air cannons and machine guns, the number of guns and their positions, their effective range, and about their overall effectiveness – including against surface targets. If there are no anti-aircraft armaments, remove this section.

Additional armament

Setup 116 x 610 mm Type 93 Model 3 torpedo
Setup 28 x Type 95 depth charge
Setup 316 x 610 mm Type 93 Model 3 torpedo
2 x Type 95 depth charge

The Kiyoshimo's torpedoes are the special Type 93 Mod 3 torpedoes, the other users being the IJN Akizuki and IJN Shimakaze. It has reduced range of 15 km compared to the standard 20 km Type 93 Model 1s found on other Japanese ships. While not gaining any speed advantage, it does gain an even larger warhead: ~1000 kg of TNT instead of ~600. These torpedoes have a tendency to oneshot anything they hit. These are especially useful in Naval EC.

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 top speed
  • Good manoeuvrability
  • 2 quad torpedo launchers with one reload each
  • Very deadly torpedoes
  • 127 mm guns have good ballistics
  • 28 x 25 mm AA with a lot of ammunition

Cons:

  • Slow turret traverse
  • Turrets tend to be taken out often
  • 25 mm AA only effective at close range (max range about 3 km)
  • 127 mm guns have no AP (Only HE and HE-DF)
  • 127 mm guns are almost useless against air targets (due to slow traverse)
