Swift spear of the IJN
Tenryu and her sister ship Tatsuta were tough Japanese light cruisers commissioned just after the first world war and used in WWII. Tenryu fought at Wake island, off Guadalcanal, and extensively in the waters around New Guinea before falling prey to USS Albacore in late 1942. The vessels itself was a new design intended to lead destroyer flotillas. It was long, thin, and fast for a cruiser, but carried lighter armor and armament than other cruisers. Kit features two sets of decals.
- I.J.N. July, 1942 (after anti-aircraft weapons are increased)
- I.J.N. December, 1941 (the outbreak of war)
