The Nagato-class dreadnought battleships were built for the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War 1, but were not completed until after the war's end. Nagato was completed 25 November 1920 The Nagato often served as the flagship of the IJN, and was one of the very ships that survived the annihilation of the IJN by the end of the Second World War to be used as a target ship for the USA's nuclear tests. The Nagato survived the nuclear explosion, but sprung a leak and sank the following day. Her sister ship Mutsu was completed on 24 October 1921. Mutsu saw more action than the Nagato due to her symbol as the flagship of the Combined Fleet, but was sunk in port by an explosion in her 3rd turret magazine, allegedly by a disgruntled sailor.
