Arashi is the 16th of the Kagero-class desteoyers. Involved in the Battle of Midway, Arashi provided escort to the carrier group. In the battle, Arashi was alerted to the presence of the US submarine Nautilus. After the attack to Nautilus, Arashi returned to rejoin the carrier group. However, she was spotted by US SBD bombers. Chasing Arashi, McClusky's bomber squadron finally found Japanese carrier group and sank three carriers. Arashi was still active after the Battle of Midway. In August 1943 Arashi was sunk by torpedo from US destroyer in the Battle of Vella Gulf.
Arashi, literally: "storm".
Battle of Middle Island E2 Reward; 20:00
Standard Depth Charge
Ah? It's here? I have finished the anti-submarine missions and come to rejoin! But is this the correct way...
In normal illustration, Arashi is looking into the distance, searching the US submarine Nautilus (even the pennant number can be seen on it).
In damaged illustration, her expression shows her panic when she saw the First Carrier Division was sunk by US dive bombers.
Arashi Leads the Way!
Two squadrons from Enterprise did not find Japanese carrier forces. At that time, McCluskey decided to fly several minutes more towards northwest, and found Arashi who was returning.
Arashi Leads the Way
In 2015 Winter Event, Arashi was the reward of E2. According to her quote, she came here by mistake.
And her initial equipment is "historically" anti-submarine equipment.
More interestingly, Arashi became a condition for leading the fleet to BOSS point in E3 and E4. (Close enough)
Arashi Protection Association
Arashi was intended to be a "fair condition for every player". Maybe game developer thought players will level-up Arashi first so that she could participate in E3 and E4.
However, lots of people, according to the statistics, went for battle with Arashi on level 10 or 20, or even level 1.
"How can I wait for so long?"
"Level is too low? Nevermind. Low level repairs faster~"
Arashi & Admiral
It's said that some people founded Arashi Protection Association to protest this behavior.
