Kagero is a destroyer based on the Japanese destroyer Kagero (Japanese: 陽炎).
Kagero-class destroyers were built after experimenting with preceding classes of J-country destroyers. Though gifted with strong torpedo capabilities, they were unable to adjust to the naval battle environments. As an escort ship for the troop convey, Kagero participated in the Battle of Midway and later remained active near the Guadalcanal waters. In May 1943, Kagero was disabled by a naval mine and was sunk by U-country aircraft.
Kagerō, literally: "mirage".
Destroyer Kagero, first of Kagero-class. Believe it or not, I'm one of the best destroyer out there, awesome enough to say that I'm the protagonist of this game.
I'm so fortunate to be Admiral's right-hand man. Hehe, looks like I'm the protagonist indeed.
- Kagero is the only ship who claims to be a protagonist of Warship Girls.
- The literal meaning of "Kagero" is "Heat Haze".
