Ship project history: On torpedo boats of this class errors supposed at designing of Tomozuru have been corrected: armament was moderated and changes are made to construction of superstructures. For stability raise the hull beam was increased. Displacement and draught were increased. At the expense of growth of engine power (on 72%) designed speed has raised. Armament repeated fitted on Tomozuru after reconstruction. They were ordered under numbers 5-20 under 2nd Supplementary program of 1934, but building of eight of 16 planed ships have refused in favour of building of submarine chasers. No13-20 (Hatsutaka, Aotaka, Wakataka, Kumataka, Yamadori, Mizudori, Umidori and Komadori) were never ordered.

Modernizations: 1942, all: - 1 x 1 - 120/45, 1 x 1 - 40/62; + 2 x 2 - 25/60 96-shiki, 2 DCT (48 totally)

1944, all survived: + 1 x 2 - 25/60 96-shiki, 5 x 1 - 25/60 96-shiki, standard displacement increased to 1043t.
