Kagerō "Heat Haze" Destroyer

Recommended Posts

By joining World of Warships: Legends you will be able to unlock the unique IJN destroyer - Kagerō.

The Kagerō has truly made her mark during the WWII. She took part in the Battle of Midway and raids on Rabaul and Colombo. The ship was also among the escort vessels supporting aircraft carriers during the attack on Pearl Harbor, under the leadership of marshal admiral Isoroku Yamamoto.

The Kagerō class destroyers were big, fast and heavily armed. Kagerō's offensive armament consisted of six 127-mm guns in three twin-gun turrets and one turret forward of the superstructure. Pursuing the idea of making a formidable warship, strong enough to stand against the US Navy, IJN equipped this new destroyer with deadly "Long Lance" torpedoes - the most advanced torpedo in the world at the time.

During the Solomon Islands campaign Kagerō performed quite an unusual task for a destroyer. At that time freighters, even with a strong escort, stood little chance against air attacks. Therefore Kagerō, as well as other destroyers. were assigned for the "Tokyo Express" re-supply missions during for Guadalcanal garrison. The ship sunk in 1943 during one of such operations. Among the Kagerō class ships only one - Yukikaze - survived the war.

How do I join?

There is a registration button on the home page that should allow you to register for a chance to participate in the next closed beta session. The exact date is not known yet, and keep in mind everyone who registers may not be accepted.

I've done that six months ago. At the top of this thread it mentions Joining world of warship legends. I thought that meant it was released now. Its not even 2018 anymore. Have they put a new date on release other than winter 2018?

Just to clarify...The Kagero is a tech tree ship, not a premium, so anybody will be able to research and play it after launch.
