Rebuilt HIJMS Fuso by rlkitterman Rebuilt HIJMS Fuso by rlkitterman
C/O the Yamato Museum: After World War I, the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) rebuilt both Fuso-class dreadnoughts with tall "pagoda masts" that became a common feature of Japanese battleships.  The elder sister HIJMS Fuso (扶桑), which was named for Japan as she was meant to be the imperial flagship, had the tallest mast with the top standing 130 feet above the waterline, though her younger sister HIJMS Yamashiro was almost as tall.  By World War II, these ships were out of date, and they were almost thirty years old when they were both sunk at the Battle of the Surigao Strait.
