cruisers built for the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) in the
mid-1930s. All four fought in World War II, and were sunk. For the
1931 Fleet Replenishment Program, believing themselves
understrength in cruisers, the IJN chose to build to the maximum
allowed by the Washington Naval Treaty. This resulted in the choice
of 155 mm (6.1 inch) guns in five triple turrets (a first for
Japan) in the Mogamis, also capable of 55 elevation, making Mogamis
one of the very few classes of Cruiser to have a Dual Purpose (DP)
main battery; this was coupled with very heavy anti-aircraft
protection, as well as the standard reloadable, turreted torpedo
tubes, also unique to the IJN.
