Class:
The Yūgumo-class destroyers (夕雲型駆逐艦 Yūgumo-gata kuchikukan) were a group of 19 destroyers built for the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II. The IJN called them Destroyer Type-A (甲型駆逐艦, Kō-gata Kuchikukan) from their plan name. No ships of the class survived the war.

History:
Hayanami (早波, "Early Waves") was a Yūgumo-class destroyer of the Imperial Japanese Navy. From 15–20 October 1943, Hayanami was used on troop transport runs from Saeki to Truk. The destroyer was used on troop transport runs from Truk to Ponape on 22-24 and 26–28 October. She provided escort for a troop transport run on 6 November to Bougainville. On 7 June 1944, Hayanami was torpedoed and sunk by the submarine USS Harder near Tawitawi, 35 miles (56 km) east of Borneo (04°43′N 120°03′ECoordinates: 04°43′N 120°03′E). The ship blew up and sank with 208 killed; 45 survivors were rescued by the destroyer Urakaze.
