Analysis

Haguro Kai

Priority: Low

At first remodel, she has decent Firepower and a mediocre Torpedo stat, making her suited for daytime surface combat thanks to Artillery Spotting but not so much for night battle.


Haguro Kai Ni

Priority: Medium-High

Her second remodel increases her Firepower and Torpedo stat, meaning she hits harder than before at day and reaches an excellent night battle potential.
However, her base Luck stat is low so she's not a reliable choice for cut-in attacks unless very significant investments are made in order to increase it.

Recommended Roles

  • Surface combat

Important Info

  • Required for unlocking the 4th fleet slot.
  • Required for A15, A35, A38, and Bm1.

Trivia

  • She is named after Mount Haguro.
  • She was sunk in the Straight of Malacca by gunfire and torpedoes, May 16, 1945.
  • Her second remodel boasts formidable stats, surpassing Choukai and Maya's maximum firepower and having the highest evasion among heavy cruisers, are probably a reference to her reputation during the Battle of the Java Sea, where she sank the combined American, British, Dutch and Australian fleet's flagship, the Dutch light cruiser HNMS De Ruyter with a single torpedo. Her evasion stat likely stems from her survival until 16th May 1945 when she was engaged and sunk by Royal Navy Force 61 during Operation Dukedom. Operation Dukedom was arranged specifically to hunt Haguro.
  • She received her Kai Ni on 23/05/2014, together with Ryuujou.

Historical info

  • Laid down 16th March 1925, launched March 24th '28 and commissioned 25th April '29.
  • Played a prominent part in the early battles of WW2 near Java, taking part in the sinkings of destroyers HMS Encounter and HNLMS Kortenaer, the light cruiser HNLMS De Ruyter and heavy cruiser HMS Exeter.
  • She continued to play an active part in the war, albeit often as AA escort, taking part in the battles of the Coral Sea, Eastern Solomans, Guadalcanal evacuations, the action at Empress Augusta Bay (and subsequent air attacks), Battle of Phillipine Sea and Leyte Gulf. Though she took some damage during these operations she avoided any major hits.
  • Sunk in the Strait of Malacca by gunfire and torpedoes, May 16, 1945, in a battle with British destroyers of the 26th Flotilla. Kamikaze was present too but lacked torpedoes and so was ordered to save herself. She was the last major ship of the war, and one of the last of time, to be sunk in a traditional gun and torpedo battle.
  • Wreck discovered on March 4th, 2003, in 213 ft. of water. Sadly, like Kuma and most other nearby wrecks, became a victim of illegal salvage activity and has mostly disappeared.
  • Her name has been resurrected as JS Haguro DDG-180, launched on 17th July 2019 under the JMSDF, a sister ship to the modern Maya-class Aegis cruisers.
