Yukikaze was one of 19 Kagero-class destroyers built for the Imperial Japanese Navy during the Second World War. The Kagero class were based on improved designs of the previous Asashio class. Yukikaze was armed with three twin-12.7cm guns, up to 32 AA guns and 2x4 610mm torpedo tubes for carrying Type 93 Long Lance torpedos (plus a reload for each tube). Yukikaze had an eventful war career, taking part in the battles of Midway, Santa Cruz, Leyte Gulf and the battle of the Philippine Sea. Yukikaze also survived Operation Ten-Go - a Japanese operation that led to the destruction of the battleship Yamato and five other warships. Yukikaze survived the war and was transferred to the Republic of China Navy under the name Tan Yang (丹陽), serving until 1966.
Yukikaze, literally: "snowy wind".

Admiral, do not fear Yukikaze. I may give you trouble, but I will try my best.
Yukikaze was the only survivor of the Kagero destroyers, and one of three surviving destroyers out of the 82 built before the war (the other two being Hibiki and Ushio).
Yukikaze was around for the loss of both Yamato and Shinano, leading to some seeing Yukikaze as a bad omen due to the ships she escorted sinking with heavy loss of life.
However others consider her a miracle ship due to survivng the war and sustaining minimal damage (hence her incredibly high luck value).
