Armoured Corvette - Kanko Maru class

Slow moving and armoured, this ship is useful in large scale naval battles as well as coastal and port battles.

Propelled by large paddle wheels, this steamship is slow moving but with decent armament. She has adequate range and accuracy, making her a good all-rounder. Her size means she can be used for large naval engagements and port battles alike, but the vessel will excel in smaller port and coastal battles where her rifle-armed crew can pick off enemies.

For many years the Japanese exercised a strict policy of national seclusion. Only the Dutch were allowed to set foot on Japanese soil and even then they were strictly regulated. Following the end of the national seclusion policy the Shogunate began talks with the Dutch to provide them with modern warships. A Dutch ship by the name of “Soembing” was sent from the Royal Netherlands naval station in the Netherlands East Indies and was formally presented to Tokugawa Iseda in 1855. This ship was renamed Kanko Maru, or “Light of the Country”. She spent most of her Japanese naval life as a training ship and ended her time at the Imperial Japanese Naval Academy in Tokyo.
