The Shimakaze class was a type of battle cruiser fielded by the Robotech Expeditionary Force.

Colonel T.R. Edwards was able to covertly equip one of these battle cruisers, the Icarus, with Shadow technology during its construction. He then stole this vessel when he fled Tirol. (Comic: "Robotech: Prelude to the Shadow Chronicles 1: The Enemy Within")

While much smaller than the Tokugawa-class battleship the addition of Shadow technology, including the powerful synchro cannon made it more than a match for the larger REF warship. (Comic: "Robotech: Prelude to the Shadow Chronicles 2: Retribution")

At least five Shimakaze class vessels were built prior to the Battle of Reflex Point, with four taking part in that battle. These battle cruisers teamed up with the SDF-4, providing long range bombardment with their synchro cannons against the Invid Carriers as they launched from Earth to engage the REF fleet.
