Fact of the Day: Japanese Battleship Nagato

By the end of World War II, Japan's navy was almost wiped out. Only one Japanese naval battleship, the Nagato survived.

  3. The Imperial Japanese battleship, NAGOTA< did not see much action at all in WW2 but was the flagship of Admiral Yamamoto until he was shot down in New Guinea by US airforce planes in quite an amazing feat of intelligence gathering.

    The NAGOTA was ingloriously sunk in an "ATOMIC BOMB" test in 1946.
    She died defiantly - surviving the first blast. She is now a war relic and is used for deep sea divers to explore - BUT NOT TOUCH!
