Mutsuki Class Destroyer

Mutsuki Class Destroyer

The Mutsuki class destroyers (睦月型駆逐艦, Mutsukigata kuchikukan?) was a class of twelve destroyers of the Imperial Japanese Navy. All were given traditional poetic names of the months of the year by the Lunar calendar or phases of the moon. Some authors consider the Kamikaze and Mutsuki class destroyers to be extensions of the earlier Minekaze-class destroyer.

Famous quotes containing the words class and/or destroyer:

    People with a culture of poverty suffer much less from repression than we of the middle class suffer and indeed, if I may make the suggestion with due qualification, they often have a hell of a lot more fun than we have.
    Brian Friel (b. 1929)

    There is a concept that is the corrupter and destroyer of all others. I speak not of Evil, whose limited empire is that of ethics; I speak of the infinite.
    Jorge Luis Borges (1899–1986)
