Note: This page refers to the Kongo-class following reconstruction that reclassified them as fast battleships.

See here for pre-reconstruction Kongo-class battlecruisers.

The Kongo Class Battleships (Kongou Class is an alternate spelling) were a class of ships ordered due to the expansions/successes of the Battlecruisers. Designed in Britain, Kongou was built in Vickers' Shipyard. Her sisters, Haruna, Hiei, and Kirishima, were built in Japan. The original desgin was incoporating 12" Cannons, but the caliber increased due to a new prototype being built. During 1926, a refit was made to enhance the Kongous to Modern Standards. A new bridge, new 14" Cannons, the addition of Type 26 25mm, 13mm, and 127mm Anti-Aircraft Guns, the extension of the gap between the number 3 and number 4 turrets for the space of a hangar, thicker armour, and most importantly, new oil-fired engines.
