Early units were built with an
extra 2x1 25mm gun and later units had one less 5" gun and added 3x2
25mm guns. Those completed in 1943-1944 retained all their 5" guns
while adding the 3x2 25mm guns.
1943: Type 22 radar added.
1944: 14x1 25mm guns and 4x1 13mm/76 AA guns added to all units.
The Yugumos were ordered in 1939 and 1941 and completed in 1941-1944. They were essentially a repeat of the Kagero class. One difference was that the main armament was mounted in Type "D" gun houses and could be elevated to 70 degrees, increasing the effectiveness of the guns in the antiaircraft role. In spite of their fighting qualities, none survived the war. Eight units beyond those listed below were planned but canceled.
