No.The only completed IJN DD with Quintuple Tubes was Shimakaze.

Was there ever any paper designs of what I wrote above for a specific IJN DD?

Not to my knowledge. "Super Akizuki" would have had either a single Quintuple or Single Sextuple launcher. "Super Shimakaze" would have been 3 Quintuples, though I guess it's possible WG could fudge some numbers and make the Tier 10 on the IJN Gunboat line a "Super- Akizuki" with 2x5 torpedo tubes.

Was going to ask if this was a stealth Kitakami thread, but then I read two launchers.

That would be some super long boat then.

Not really, there appears to be enough deck space on Akizuki if you move the superstructure around a bit

Yeah I'm looking at it right now, if you remove the 2 very center nests, maybe.  Other than that it's gonna have real short ends if you slide the guns back.  I suppose you cut back some the curvature on the smokestack, but I don't know if that's dangerous.

Shimakaze's draft design called for 2x septuple launchers.

It turned out to be too heavy to turn manually, so they went for 3x quintuple.
