IJN FleetThe Imperial Japanese Navy or IJN was the navy of the empire of Japan from 1868-1945 when it was dissolved following Japan’s defeat in World War II. By 1920 the IJN was the third biggest naval fleet behind the Royal Navy and the USN (United States Navy) and were the primary oppnent to the western allies in the Pacific War. High ranking fleets in the IJN included the Northern Expeditionary Fleet, the Eastern and Western Fleet (later incorporated into the Medium fleet), the China Area fleet, the Escort fleet and the combined fleet. The escort fleet contains the Kaibōkan which translates to sea defence ship or coastal defence ship in which the United States called escort ships.
DD’s or Destoryers have high concealment and maneuve while lacking in survivability, gun and AA like most other DD’s. IJN ships tend to have superior torpedo tubes than other destroyers and better steering. While lacking in guns this DD line packs a punch when the enemy is hit with their arsenal of torpedoes.
BB’s or Battleships in the IJN line tend to have an equal amount of everything than it’s BB counterparts however, at tier X, falls short in terms of Anti-Aircraft Armament and Guns. Many players choose this line for it’s tier X the Yamato for it’s excellent survivability and the biggest guns in the game with the main batteries clocking in at 460mm diameter, the highest in the game. This line is best to be played at a mid to close range area of the map, moving in when opposing DD’s have been destroyed
