- Tosa-class battleship (nom) by Sturmvogel 66, Parsecboy and The ed17. The Tosa class were two dreadnought battleships of the Imperial Japanese Navy, ordered during the early 1920s. The first ship, Tosa, was canceled before completion as a result of an international naval-limiting treaty, being used then in experiments to assess the effectiveness of its armor. The results of these tests were used years later to design the heaviest battleships ever built, the Yamato class. The hull of the second ship, Kaga, was converted into an aircraft carrier and was sunk in the Second World War.
