Head of the class
An aircraft carrier in virtually all but name, the DDH Izumo "Helicopter Destroyer" can carry up to 28 aircraft and is the largest vessel launched by Japan since the end of WWII. This vessel, and the vessels to follow it in this class, are specialized for anti-submarine warfare, search and rescue and, potentially, amphibious assault. They are also capable of launching short takeoff and landing aircraft. Kit features aircraft and vehicle parts.
