During the Battle of Leyte Gulf on 24–25 October 1944, Shiranui was assigned to Vice Admiral Shōji Nishimura’s diversionary force at the Battle of Surigao Strait. After the battle, she departed Coron to search for the missing cruiser Kinu and destroyer Uranami, and took on survivors from the destroyer Hayashimo. On 27 October she was sunk with all hands by dive-bombers from USS Enterprise,[6] 80 miles (130 km) north of Iloilo, Panay (12°0′N 122°30′ECoordinates: 12°0′N 122°30′E).[7]


I'm not crying over the loss of all hands.

Shiranui was a Kagerou-class destroyer that didn't really do much of note. But I really like this picture, so I wanted to share it with y'all.

Though she did rescue the survivors of my account's namesake before being sunk with all hands by the USS Enterprise, so that's something, I guess.

Her guns aren't nearly as impressive as Mai's.
