DD-133/TV-3513 Shimayuki (しまゆき) island snow

Here's Shimayuki, Training Vessel 3513, ex DD-133, as seen entering Nakagusuku harbour in Okinawa in early 2018. Shimayuki was the last sister to be laid down and the first of the class to be converted to a training vessel, on March 1999. The conversion involved primarily turning the hangar into offices and school facilities, renouncing the ability to embark a helicopter. Otherwise she retains her full armament and equipment seen on latter years on these ships. She carries two Harpoon canisters per side.
The cartoon anthropomorphization of the ship is used on a stand display, shown along the ship during visits open to the public.

Another one done, and I've updated all ships with the ship's badge. Thanks to ABetterName for pointing me in that direction, and curses be upon him for all the time I used up on that!
Yamayuki-subclass is done, so expect earlier ships now, hopefully I can nail at least one as built drawing.

...I am not generally in the habit of making absolute statements, but this is categorically the first time I have ever seen an ASROC box launcher worn as a necklace around an anime figurine.
