The Ise-class battleships were essentially upgraded Fuso-class dreadnought battleships. Similar to the Fuso-class, they had six twin turrets, with Turret No. 3 grouped with Turret No.4 and facing aft in order to improve placement of magazines and other machinery. Both ships, Ise and Hyuga, were converted into aviation battleships unique to the IJN in order to bolster air power due to the loss of dedicated carriers. Both ships were lost in the war.
Ise and Hyuuga sinking due to a raid on Kure in 1945.
