Introduction
Play
航空母艦「鳳翔」です。不束者ですが、よろしくお願いいたします Aircraft carrier, Houshou. Although I'm inexperienced, I look forward to your guidance. The latter part was a common greeting when a bride greets her new husband (esp. back in the days when woman walked three steps behind her man).

CharacterEdit

AppearanceEdit

  • Like some other carriers, her attire is based on kyūdo (Japanese archery) equipment. She wears a scarlet kimono, a dark hakama, and a matching tasuki (a rope to tuck up the kimono sleeves to prevent them from getting in the way). She holds a bow with her left hand, and wears a yugake (deerskin glove) on her right hand. Her flight deck is attached to her left arm. She has a set of arrows on her back with the Japanese aircraft insignia (red circle) on the arrow fletchings.

PersonalityEdit

  • Hōshō (Houshou) was the world's first commissioned ship that was designed and built as an aircraft carrier (Other carriers in her days were conversions from other types of ships). For this reason, she can be considered to be the "mother" of all carriers and is given a very motherly, reserved and caring personality.
  • Her quotes also suggest that she is a stereotypical "good wife" of the old days. You can bet she's a good cook too; in fact, Chitose Carrier Kai 2's hourly line on 7 pm indicates that she runs a restaurant or possibly, an izakaya (something like a pub or a bar).

TriviaEdit

  • Her name literally translates as "phoenix in flight" (鳳=phoenix, 翔=soar/fly).
  • Weak and outdated (but this helped her to survive WWII).
  • Due to her comments regarding opening a little store with the admiral, JP players often refer to her as おかみさん (Okami-san, lit. "boss lady" or the female owner of a typical Japanese store).
  • Lowest consumption out of all the carriers, which is good for expeditions.
  • Her arrows have orange-yellow fletchings as opposed to the white and green arrow fletchings of other carriers. This is a reference to the IJN's way of painting its training aircraft, a bright yellow or orange color such as Prototype Nanzan.
  • Scrapping began September 2, 1946 after the mission of repatriations was over.
  • She served as a repatriation transport to retrieve Japanese servicemen and civilians stationed overseas and to return them to Japan. During her repatriation mission, she was modified (i.e., her hangars were cut) to carry more passengers to continue her repatriation trips. She ultimately carried transports of about 40,000 passengers before she was scrapped.
  • The original Houshou appeared in the animated movie "The Wind Rises" as the aircraft carrier visited by Horikoshi Jiro and his supervisor Kurokawa. Nagato, with the serpentine funnel unique to her class, was shown as well, albeit briefly.
  • Participated in the Battle of Midway with the task of providing modest air protection, scouting, and anti-submarine support to the Main Body (consisting of Yamato, Nagato, Mutsu).
  • A Yokosuka B4Y 'Jean' from Houshou took aerial photographs of a burning Hiryuu on June 5th 1942 after the Battle of Midway.
  • She makes a small appearance in the anime, letting Shimakaze sleep on her lap and further displaying her motherly character.
  • She would have had a sister ship, the IJN Shokaku, which was cancelled in 1922 according to the Washington Naval Treaty; Shoukaku was used for the new Fleet Carrier class following Hiryuu and Soryuu instead.
