- DESRON 14 is comprised of six Shimikaze Class Battlecrusiers. However, only two, the Yukikaze and the Miyuki, mount a forward firing Reflex Cannon. The other four are pre-refit variants. The four, ‘Snub-Nosed’ ships instead mount an array of torpedo tubes within the forward hull. Never the less, these craft are extremely deadly and together comprise a formidable ‘Wolf Pack’.
