Anyone ever heard or better yet have some photos of a special type of modified Kuma Class Light Cruiser in the IJN that was in a squad of 3 Kuma and carried 20 Torpedo broadside per ship as part of IJN plan for massed Torpedo attacks?

Hoping to get good discussion rolling on these because they sound like they were awesome idea for IJN night attacks.

That would be called the Kitakami.

I'd look it up if I were you.

Thanks, the book I am reading on the IJN did not mention the name of the modified Kuma Class, at least not yet anyway since it's been going over the interwar plans etc. 

Lol I want one for me to use in game XD

It was removed after the beta test, and replaced with the Atago.

Something about torps, teammates, and misery.

I don't think you understand. Kitakami was already in the game. She was removed because of the excessive TKing she caused.

Sorry to tell you mate.... we had the kitakami, people used her to TK the hell out of people so we lost her.

you see, we don't get to have nice things.

also this is what kit-kat threads look like to me:

Seriously... The holy grail that many lust for, lose sleep over, and dream of nightly that they'll never see ever get but post incessantly about... That KITAKAMI?? :cap_book:

The two ships were basically a bad Idea that never went anywhere, and were eventualy striped of the torpedoes, converted to Kaiten carriers, AND then ended up sunk or used as a repair depot ship.

 

and for the love of god Do not mention

Lol did not think of that, but what a wonderful idea to consider...

" Ok team listen up there are 2 ways this battle can go, either you get out there immediately and Fight or you all die right here and now in the spawn..." jk

 

I would use her as a carrying ship and wipe out the enemy teams lol

"feel free to watch me on the sidelines in your BBs"

— What I would probably actually occasionally tell my teams if I had that ship.

And just think of using them as originally intended my IJN where you have a division of 3 of those ships... Torpedo soup containing 120 Torps anyone?
