HistoryEdit

HeadingForFirstContact

A Kongo-class space battleship leaving Earth for First Contact with the Great Garmillas Empire.

They 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).

NotesEdit

  • The class is most likely named after the WWII Kongo-class, as both classes have a ship named Kongo, Kirishima, Haruna, and Hiei in its class.[source?]
  • The class could also be named after the Kongo-class Aegis Destroyer, and like the UNCF Kongo-class has the ship named Kongo, Myoko and Kirishima in the class.[source?]
