Episode 41 of Know Your Ship! In this educational video I cover the Fubuki class destroyers of the Imperial Japanese Navy. These destroyers at the time of their entry into service were among the most powerful destroyers in the world. The combination of their guns and torpedoes made these destroyers extremely formidable in combat. Anyways Captain’s sit back, relax and enjoy the story of the Fubuki class destroyers.
♥♥ The Know Your Ship series is not monetized by me due to these being educational videos 🙂 ♥♥
