Sounds like the Kamikaze, no longer available except in a container drop.

So how do you actually get one?

You can still play Minekaze it has the same 3 dual torp launchers and is Tech Tree. The torps just aren't quite the same.  The only way to get the others is to hope for them in christmas containers.

Minekaze... Its a regular tech Torp DD.

Shinamone is the one with completion of the Corresponding Campaign. That is tier 6...

(us old timers need time to remember, its been years since we finished the campaigns).

Fujin can be bought in the store..

It's not listed in the Premium Shop.

Could you mean the Armory? (at work and cannot check armory)

It hasn't been listed for a long time.  I doubt it will be back, since it is the same ship as the Kamikaze and considered to be OP.  You will only see those OP ships in the Christmas Crates, or some other crate to entice massive $$ purchases.

Kamikaze R , is what I believe you are referring to: straight up OP.   If your are in a game it with one it should be the priority to kill above all else.

IMO, only the KAMI was move to the containers... The FUJIN, its an old ship with an equally old meta and tier 5... It may not be as popular compared to a BB of the same tier??

Just  a thought...

Kamikaze, 45 sec reload with a high point captain, 1,6 km stealth torp rang. Was removed because of being broken OP.

Actually, I just got my Fujin from the Christmas containers this year.  IIRC it comes available much less often than the Kami twins (that I have had for some time).  All 3 used to be deadly little torp monsters...  I don't play mine enough to see if they are still that good.

This is absolutely true. And to add to it, the Fujin is identical in all relevant ways to the Kamikaze sisters.  Which means Fujin is also brokenly OP, so ignore what was written above - you're not going to seen Fujin in the armory anytime soon without a significant change in philosophy from WG.

I am assuming the Fujin is more rare in the shop because of. sells Dept. pushing high tier ships sells/avail.

I think the Fujin will return, unless I can find the patch note stating its retired... (I am not going to search for it :cap_cool:)

You dont want that. You want the Russian War Canoe. Okhotnik, T5, 7 130mm guns and 4 triple tube launchers with a 47 second reload. It ain't fast, it ain't sneaky, but as an ambush predator it is VERY fun to play.

Minikaze, before the IJN DD nerf was the original OP DD. Kami R was obtainable from a mission, & was briefly in the Premium Shop with Fujin.

I got my Fujin for $16, just after the big Nerf.  My old Minikaze captains live on the Kami & Fujin now.

They're still the little monsters they were on day 1. In fact they are objectively more dangerous now since TTM1 made their torps go 71 knots.

Of course the Kamikaze sisters have suffered a lot from the influx of CVs at low tiers, but in fairness all tier 5 DDs suffer from this problem. If Kamikaze/Kamikaze R/Fujin manage to get a CV-less match however, they are still a terror.

Actually, if I remember correctly, the party canoe has really good concealment, but its torps are so short-ranged that the low concealment doesn't feel sneaky.

Here is a link to LWM's "quick reviews", which includes the current availability.

Bottom line is the Kami sisters (which includes Fujin) were pulled from the shop over 3 years ago never to return except as "lottery" ships.  So if you're feeling lucky, go for it.  But don't count on ever having one if you don't already.  Or are willing to spend a lot of $$$ on crates for the chance to get one.
