Description: The Japan Marine Self Defense Force (JMSDF) Haruna is a class of anti-submarine warfare (ASW) destroyers with limited anti-aircraft warfare (AAW) capabilities. Its propulsion system is based on two steam turbines developing 70,000-shp of power and enabling a top speed of 31 knots. Haruna-class destroyers feature a huge aft flight deck and hangar to allow operation of up to three SH-60J helicopters. Its weapon system consists of two 5-in (127mm) gun systems, two 20mm Phalanx gun system mounted before the flight deck, one eight-cell Sea Sparrow surface-to-air missile system (18 missiles), one ASROC rocket system and two triple 12.75-in torpedo tubes.
