Just out of sheer historical curiosity, can anyone who knows more about ship design than me tell me what these things are on top of the Myoko's superstructure? From their shape they look like speakers, but they move back and forth through an arc so I'm wondering if they're some kind of sensor?

Looks like a Type 22 radar set to me.

Ah, that looks like it. Never knew radar antenna/sensors could come in that kind of shape. You learn something new every day. Cheers :Smile_honoring:

Thanks chaps - I saw something similar on one of my DDs (I think) the other day, and was idly wondering what they were too...

It is indeed a Type 22 surface search radar.

 

tfw you can identify IJN radar sets thanks to Kancolle...
