――It is a pine type that has a higher ability to build quickly than a conventional destroyer, but the Navy demands that it be further enhanced.
――The policy is to change the local line structure, which takes time to work, to a linear structure to further improve mass productivity.
――The [Tachibana] type was built as this modified pine type. The ship type section has changed to a structure that uses a straight line to stop flare (the wave protection curve from the draft line to the edge of the deck).
――For this reason, the shape of the plane of the bow is sharp and sharp, which is a big difference from the pine shape.
-The stern has also been changed from a circular shape to a straight shape called a cruiser stun.

――Especially, we put a lot of effort into expressing the unique bonded part of the side steel plate on the bow.
