JAPANESE BATTLESHIP NAGATO 51 Super Drawings in 3D
Nagato, named for Nagato Province, was a super-dreadnought battleship built for the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) during the 1910s. The lead ship of her class, she carried supplies for the survivors of the Great Kantō earthquake in 1923. The ship was modernised in 1934–36 with improvements to her armour and machinery and a rebuilt superstructure in the pagoda mast style. Nagato briefly participated in the Second Sino-Japanese War in 1937 and was the flagship of Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto during the attack on Pearl Harbour. She covered the withdrawal of the attacking ships and did not participate in the attack itself.
