Product: 1:700 Jap. Kumano Lt. Kreuzer Waterline

The Kumano, a heavy Mogami-class cruiser, was completed in the fall of 1937. As with the sister ships, the main armament consisted of 5 triplet gun turrets. Each of these 15.5 cm guns (projectile speed of 920 m/s) had a maximum range of 27,400 m and a projection angle of up to 55 degrees.

During her service, the Kumano served in the Battle of Midway, the Battle of the Eastern Solomon Islands, and the largest naval battle of World War II, the Battle of the Gulf of Leyte. Here the Kumano suffered considerable damage. Shortly before the completion of the repair work, she was hit by several torpedoes and sank in 1944 in the bay of Santa Cruz.
