Armaments and Technical SpecificationsEdit
The armament of the Kongo-class Battleships are 36cm (360mm) Shock Cannon is built in the bow of the ship, 360mm triple barrel turrets (two dorsal & two ventral), 8 forward Torpedo Tubes, 16-cell Vertical Launch System (Missiles), and numerous point-defense batteries.
HistoryEditThey served as battleships from first contact with the Great Garmillas Empire until the First Battle of Pluto. At Pluto, the Kirishima served as the flagship. By the end of the war, only Kirishima is still in service, and is seen patrolling Earth's orbit when the Yamato departs Earth for Iscandar.[source?]
The class is still in service after the Garmillas-Earth War, having been upgraded to be warp capable and outfitted with weaponry comparable to that of Garmillas vessels. Several vessels of the class, including Yuunagi and Ticonderoga, fly with a Garmillas fleet for an engagement with the Gatlantis Empire in 2202 (Space Battleship Yamato 2202: Warriors of Love).
Notable Kongo-class ShipsEdit
A total of eight Kongo-class battleships were built; however, by 2199, only the Kirishima remained in service.[source?] More vessels were built post-war (Space Battleship Yamato 2202: Warriors of Love).
