The Hiryu is a Japanese aircraft carrier.


The aircraft carrier has four twin 12.7cm Type 89 dual-purpose guns, which have two firing modes - as anti-aircraft guns or as naval artillery. It also has four twin 25mm Type 96 anti-aircraft guns. It typically has Mitsubishi A6M Zero, Aichi D3A Val, and Nakajima B5N Kate spawned on the deck. Two Daihatsu-class landing craft also spawn on the rear of the carrier.

It can be found in 4112-Wake Island, Battle of Midway, and Wake Island.


The Hiryu and Soryu share the same model as the Shokaku-class aircraft carrier, which is modified from the original Battlefield 1942's Shōkaku model.
