Well all you WW2 history buffs what ship is this? I go to all of the trouble of making this ship and you guys (and gals) want to blow it to pieces and sink it to the bottom of the sea - grrrr.

No, it's an He177A5 with radio 3 controlled rockets (I forgot their names). Great plane and very fast BUT the engines tended to overheat and catch fire.

Imperial Japanese Navy Nagara class light cruiser.

Typically used as a command ship for a destroyer flotilla.

I think those missiles are Fritz-X, 1400Kg armour piercing bombs which were used to sink the Italian battleship Roma.

Was Tanaka's flagship during the Tokyo Express runs off Guadalcanal (Jintsu I think) of that class? I know it was an old, but fast, light cruiser that was leading the destroyers every night.
