Photos from 1983: Doomsday

An undated photograph of the JDS Shirane (DDH-143), the lead ship of her class of Shirane-class helicopter destroyers and the most powerful warship of the JMSDF as of 1983. Unfortunately, Shirane would become a casualty during Doomsday as she was at port in Yokosuka. Her sister ship, the JDS Kurama (DDH-144), shared the same fate as it was docked in Sasebo.

The JDS Shirane is featured in the manga Zipang, where she was sent back in time to the Battle of Midway in 1942.
