West Japanese ASW destroyer RJS Hatsuyuki (DD-122) at sea on May 27th, 2007.

The Hatsuyuki-class destroyer is a class of Japanese destroyer, serving with the Republic of Japan Navy (RoJN). It was the third generation of general purpose destroyers, though like its predecessor, the Yamagumo-class destroyers, the main task is anti-submarine warfare. The class was completed between 1982 and 1987. Due to its size it would be more appropriately classed as a frigate.
