The Hatsuyuki-class destroyer (はつゆき型護衛艦,   Hatsuyuki-gata Goeikan) is a type of Japanese warship featured in numerous Godzilla films, beginning with Godzilla vs. Biollante.

History

Heisei Series

Godzilla vs. Biollante

After Bio-Major freed Godzilla from Mount Mihara, several Hatsuyuki-class destroyers, along with a Haruna-class destroyer and UH-1B Hueys, confronted him in the Uraga Channel. Raining an onslaught of weaponry at the kaiju, the Hatsuyukis and the Haruna were unsuccessful, as Godzilla destroyed the latter with his atomic breath.

Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla

The Hatsuyuki-class destroyers were deployed once more when Godzilla appeared near the coast of Kagoshima as he traveled across Japan to face SpaceGodzilla and free his son, LittleGodzilla, from his crystal prison. Once again, their weapons were ineffective, and Godzilla wiped out a Haruna-class destroyer.

Godzilla vs. Destoroyah

A Hatsuyuki-class destroyer followed Godzilla off the coast of Okinawa while G-Force constructed a plan to deal with his impending meltdown.

Millennium Series

Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla

The Hatsuyuki was used by the JMSDF when Godzilla was believed to be approaching Tokyo. The ship traveled through Tokyo Bay, and discovered the kaiju using its sonar.

Trivia

  • The naval battle in Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla was significantly shortened due to several special effects malfunctions, including the self-destruction of a Haruna-class destroyer miniature's guns.
