The Yakaze-class is a class of guided missile destroyers built for the Republic of Dayashina Navy. Eight ships were built in it's class, making in the RDN's most widely proliferated AAW destroyer. The Yakaze-class is considered a revolutionary naval achievement by defence analysts, being the first ship in the world to be equipped with the Suijin combat system.

It served as the model for the development of the Menghean Emil-si-class Suijin-equipped guided missile destroyers. Three Yakaze-class destroyers were sold to Themiclesia to fulfill a need for significantly upgraded AAW capabilities with increased threat from Maverica.

The Yakaze-class destroyers in service with the RDN have all been upgraded to Flight II, with electronic warfare capabilities identical to that of the Miyuki-class standard.
