The Tosa class battleships, known as Design A-127 during early planning, was a Imperial Japanese Navy dreadnought class planned as part of the 'Eight-Eight' fleet. The ships were a larger version of the preceding Nagato-class, and mounted an additional dual 16 in (406 mm) gun turret. The ships were also larger, in both length and beam, and drew an additional 10 inches (25.4 cm) at full load. The design for the class also served as a basis for the contemporary Amagi class battlecruisers.The Tosa class consisted of Tosa and Kaga. Both were canceled according to the terms of the Washington Naval Treaty before either could be completed. Tosa was sunk as a gunnery target in the Bungo Channel, while the incomplete hull of Kaga was converted into an aircraft carrier.After having been converted into an aircraft carrier, Kaga took part in the attack on Pearl Harbor, before eventually being sunk at the Battle of Midway in 1942.
