Hizen ● Japanese Tier IX Battleship 1935

A variant of the "super battleship" design (project А-140-J3) that was the predecessor of the Yamato-class ships. It was planned for her to have twelve 410 mm guns in triple turrets as her main battery. Such a number of guns, uncharacteristic for Japanese high-tier battleships, allows the ship to deal a significant amount of damage.

Hizen Province, the history of which dates back to the 7th century, was located on the south-western coast of Japan. The center of the province was located near Yamato city.
