Has anyone else noted that the dev's, or whoever wrote their copy for them, have the Kongo-class BB's in the ARP group in the wrong order? The correct order is as follows: Kongo, Hiei, Kirishima, and Haruna. They list the Kirishima as 4th in the class. No, this isn't at all game-critical, but for us amateur Naval historians, (And there are a few of us) it sticks out.

As I understand it, the model in the game for Kongo is actually Hiei.

Depends on what you're ordering them by,

They were laid down, Kongo, Hiei, Haruna and Kirishima

They were launched, Kongo, Hiei, Kirishima and Haruna

And completed, Kongo, Hiei,  with Haruna and Kirishima on the same day.

I have no idea how the Japanese ordered their ships, as many countries have their own unique nuances in that regard.

Warship 2012 has them as Kongo, Hiei, Haruna, Kirishima in order of building, in the article The Battlecruisers of the Kongo Class, by Hans Lengerer. That matches JSDF archive records. SgtBeltfed has it right with regard to completion.
