General Information

Isokaze (磯風, "Wind on the Beach") was one of 19 Kagerō-class destroyers built for the Imperial Japanese Navy during the 1930s.

On 7 April 1945, Isokaze escorted the battleship Yamato from the Inland Sea on her Operation Ten-Go attack on the Allied forces on Okinawa. She was struck by aircraft of Task Force 58 and scuttled by the destroyer Yukikaze with gunfire 150 miles (240 km) southwest of Nagasaki . Of those on board, 20 were killed and rest were rescued by other ships. Yamato's other escorts, including Hamakaze, Asashimo and Yamato herself, were sunk afterwards, Asashimo losing all hands during the encounter.

Isokaze's wreckage was located in an underwater survey in May 2016, but the news was not made public until February 10, 2018.
