Magnetized Custom Painted IJN Unryū Class Carriers w/ Wooden Deck (x2)
The Unryu fleet carrier was the lead ship of her planned 16 member class. This class was based on a modified Hiryu design for quicker construction rather than the more sophisticated Taiho and Shokaku designs. The Unryu laid down in 1942 and launched just 2 years later. However, due to fuel and aircrew shortages she was forced to remain in limited use. She was ordered to transfer aircraft and supplies to the Philippines in December 1944 just prior to the invasion of Luzon and was sunk en route by a US submarine.
Add the Unryu to your carrier lineup to provide a more realistic diversity of Japanese fleet carriers.
The Unryu comes with a unique, historically accurate flight deck decal and two strong neodymium rare earth magnets to hold two aircraft.
