    Provenance:
    The War Museum

    The Nagato (Japanese: 長門, named after Nagato province) was the lead ship of her class, and the first battleship in the world to mount 16 inch (410 mm) guns, her armor protection and speed made her one of the most powerful capital ships at the time of her commissioning. She was the flagship of Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto at the time of the attack on Pearl Harbor. She participated in a number of naval actions, but fired her main armament against enemy surface vessels only once, during the Battle of Leyte Gulf. She survived the war and was sunk by the underwater nuclear test BAKER at Bikini Atoll in 1946.
