The dates in the last paragraph don't line up.[edit]

I don't know if they're correct and the sentences need reordering or incorrect entirely -- Richfife 23:31, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

I believe that it should be 'November 1944' that the 'Tone' went into drydock for repairs... I'm changing it appropriately. If anybody has different info, then please revert or change.--Peidu 17:26, 30 January 2006 (UTC)

WP:MILHIST Assessment[edit]

Not quite as long as many B-class articles, but for all I know there's a good chance that there isn't much more to be said here (if there is any expansion to be done, please do go ahead and expand); in my opinion, all this needs to fully move up to B-class would be a picture.

Sentence Fragment[edit]

Looks like there's an incomplete sentence in the Battle of the Java Sea section. Anyone know how it's supposed to end? SkipSmith (talk) 07:52, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Internal Contradiction?[edit]

Late in the article, there is a sentence that ends with the phrase "but Tone's sister ships Chikuma, Chokai, and Suzuya were lost." which suggests that Tone was part of a class of at least 4 ships. However, the opening sentence says "was the lead ship in the two-vessel Tone-class". I'm no expert on this area so I'm guessing that the opening sentence is correct and the later fragment wants to say that "Tone's sister ship Chikuma was lost, along with Chokai and Suzuya". Could someone confirm that? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gmwinn (talkcontribs) 15:59, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

Yes, you are correct. Originally intended to be the fifth and sixth vessels in the Mogami class, they were redesigned following the 4th Fleet Incident to improve their sea worthiness and to allow them to take on the role of scout plane carriers for the carrier strike force. They are in their own two vessel class. I have corrected the text to reflect that. Gunbirddriver (talk) 06:38, 17 January 2014 (UTC)


Heavy Cruser Myoko did not make it to the Battle Off Samar. It was damaged in the Sibuyan Sea along with Musashi, and withdrew. Musashi of course sank.Ealtram (talk) 16:40, 25 September 2017 (UTC)[1]
