A definitive step towards the final Fuso class
Still using the 30cm Cannons but designers returned to the twin turrets all centreline with 3 superfiring pairs: One forward, one middle and one aft.
The design itself is very similar to the later Ise class Battleships, differentiating only in weapon calibre and that the second pair of turrets are on the same height as the first part rather then the aft pair as on the Ises.
This variant was 180meters long and weighted 28,100tons.
Overview of this design:
Engine Power: 46.000shp
Maximum Speed: 43km/h (23knots)
Armour Thickness: 305mm Belt, 52mm Deck
6x1 76mm Guns,
6x1 533mm Torpedoes.
