Hi guys!

 

Here's part 2 of the Ise-class, Hyūga.

As always, the pics are found here: http://blog.livedoor.jp/irootoko_jr/

Let's get this show on the sea!

 

 

kRasMd2.jpgWe start off with Hyūga on sea trials on December 15, 1917.

 

A9ANsh6.jpgWe see Hyūga at anchor in 1918, possibly fitting out as this is the year she was commissioned.

 

1Ucug6D.jpgIse and Hyūga at anchor in 1918. At least a few of the sailors are getting some rays.

 

onAfAPz.jpgAn intimidating waterline bow shot of Hyūga at anchor, 1928, after her first reconstruction. A couple of her torpedo net arms are out, and we can also sea the anchor chain and the Imperial Seal of Japan, prominent on the bow, a golden chrysanthemum.

 

WxuF9KL.jpgA starboard beam shot of Hyūga at Kure, Naval Yard, 1930. Soon after this she will be reconstructed.

 

XGiuipA.jpgHyūga alongside an Yokosuka E1Y3 Type 14 Recon seaplane, 1930.

 

LvKHDzX.jpgHyūga at Kure Naval Yard at anchor with another unidentified ship in 1936. She is now in her 2nd reconstruction.

 

zaBIWbj.jpgHyūga underway at speed, 1936. At max speed the Ise-class could go 25 knots(29 mph).

 

xmA0q9k.jpgHyūga after her conversion to a battlship-carrier, on sea trials on November 19, 1943.

 

tlVzSJN.jpgThe wreck of Hyūga in Kure Naval Yard. Like her sister, she was relegated to floating AA battery.

 

 

 

And that's all! I'm taking a break for awhile, you might see something later in the week so stay tuned!

Fair winds and following seas captains! :honoring:

Getting sunk at Kure didn't go well for the seaplane deck. Guessing that section has been salvaged?

That's a really good illustration of how the bow wave ocillates along the length of the ship. At that speed, with her bow wave and stern wave combining at the stern like that, it leads me to believe that her hull form was pretty well designed for speed. That's a good sign when the length of the bow wave puts the top of a wave right at the stern like that.

She was raised and broken up from July 2, 1946-July 4, 1947, by the Kure Drydock of Harima Zosen Yard.

They were designed at least partially (Speed wise) to counter the speed of the British Queen Elizabeth-class battleships and the Russian Borodino-class battlecruisers.

I think that may be a perspective thing because the actual waterline  is now above the main deck.  From the look of it the plane deck is still near the level of turret 3.  It may have also collapsed a little during the attack/sinking.  :hmm:

Yeah it's just cool to see something I had to learn about in school in an old photo.
