The Amagi type is a battle cruiser of the Eight-eight fleet planned by the Japanese Navy. After she was laid down, the Washington Naval Treaty was signed and she was discontinued. After the construction was canceled, the first ship “Amagi” and the second ship “Akagi” were converted into aircraft carriers. Amagi damaged her hull in the Great Kanto Earthquake during her refurbishment and her construction was abandoned. “Kaga” was remodeled into an aircraft carrier instead of this Amagi.
