I have a chance to get some national ship data books for World War Two navies from Clash of Arms.
One is on the German navy; one is on the Japanese navy; one on the US navy and one on the British home fleet. These retail at $30 USD and I will be able to sale them at $22.50 USD each.
If they are good reference for any rules great but if they are specific for Steel Typhoon then I do not want to spend money on them.

They are, as expected, the data is keyed towards their own rules. You'd be hard pressed to use them for other rules. That said, the scenarios can be used with any set of rules.

I'll sort of disagree with Charlie 12. The ship data books do have information for the Command at Sea rules, but they also have a lot of information on changes to ships during World War 2. The aircraft section also has a lot of information on bomb loads and speeds of aircraft. The weapons annexes are a mixed bag of system ratings and real ratings (i.e. gun data might not be super useful, but the torpedo ratings have some good information).

But you don't have to really take my word for it on the ship data. Just go to Wargame Vault, look for The Emperor's Fleet and do the full size preview. The last two pages of the preview show a number of Japanese ships and the information in the annexes. Then you can decide for yourself as to the usefulness of the information.

I think they are very informative. I found the german one particularly helpful.
