Description: The Japan Marine Self Defense Force (JMSDF) Tachikaze-class escort frigates, destroyers for MSDF, were designed primarily to provide area air defense for Japanese escort flotillas with secondary anti-submarine warfare (ASW) capabilities. Its propulsion system consists of gas turbines developing 60,000-shp of power and enabling a top speed of 32 knots. Tachikaze-class frigates were not provided helicopter facilities. The weapon system consists of two 5-in (127mm) dual purpose guns, two 20mm Phalanx guns, 40 SM-1 MR surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) with MK-13 launching system, 16 ASROC rockets, and two triple 12.75-in torpedo tubes. The JMSDF commissioned three ships in 1976, 1979 and 1983.
