This model assembly construction kit recreates the JMSDF Defense Ship FFM-1 Mogami. The Mogami was commissioned on April 28, 2022, ushering in a new era of Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) defense ships as the first of its eponymous Mogami class which was given a new FFM classification, signifying its ships’ status as frigates (FF) with a multi-purpose brief including mine(M)-related duties, and featured advanced stealth characteristics. The equipment under the rear flight deck can be taken from the stern hatch and utilized for minesweeping and marine patrol, while a slanted flight deck secures the space to store the
equipment. As of March 2023, six ships of this class have been launched, and twelve ships in total are planned.
