Armoured Corvette - Kaiten class

Faster than comparably-sized ships, the Kaiten’s speed and manoeuvrability make it ideal for port and coastal battles.

This paddle steamer is fast, and as such is ideal for supporting larger ships that lack her manoeuvrability. However, she lacks the armour of larger ships and is vulnerable to artillery fire. Her armament is not as large as some ships of her class, but the guns have good range and accuracy. Her decks are also manned by rifle-armed crewmen.

Fishing has always been an important aspect of Japanese society and as such appears regularly in mythology. Many tales are intended to impart the importance of respecting the sea and all its creatures. One such tale is the story of Urashima Taro, a fisherman who rescued a turtle from a group of children and returned it to the sea. The turtle turned out to be the daughter of Ryujin, the god of the ocean, who invited the fisherman to his palace beneath the waves. The man soon yearned to return home and the princess gave him a box, warning him never to open it. He returned home to discover hundreds of years had passed and all those he once knew were dead. In his grief he opened the box. The voice of the princess whispered from the sea, “I warned you.” Urashima Taro instantly aged and, in some versions of the story, turned to dust and floated away on the wind.
