Battleship Nagumo's Information

The Battleship Nagumo was the only Meiji-class battleship to remain in service for over a century. Constructed in 723 AS, it was designed as part of Kusari's emphasis on centralization and self-preservation known as Sakoku, functioning as a strategically placed deterrent against any hostile intrusion coming from the neighbouring Tau systems. While it could be classified as a historical monument due to its age and uniqueness, the Kusari government have chosen not to promote the battleship in this way, as to them it is seen as a failure.



The Nagumo was the last Meiji-class battleship scheduled to be decommissioned and be replaced by the new Bakumatsu-class battleships that were being produced by Samura. As its militarily vital position in Kusari was one of great importance, the Nagumo could not be moved until another ship was deployed to take its place. The rising tensions in the Tau borderworlds prevented such a replacement from being constructed. Instead, the Battleship Nagasaki briefly replaced Nagumo, allowing Samura to refit the ship and shore up the structural weaknesses that led to the discontinuation of the Meiji class. Nagumo then resumed her assigned station, freeing up the Nagasaki for action in the Tau borderworlds.



Later on the Nagumo was a major actor in the battle for the Tau-29 gate. Although ultimately forced to retreat, the actions of this battlegroup managed to slow down the momentum of the IKN forces, and allowed the Republic to hold most of the Kyushu system for the remainder of the year. The Nagumo held the lines of defence over Planet Kyushu's orbital area, and actively organized the military actions against Imperial forces in the system. Without the arrival of a sufficient aid however, due to fighting elsewhere on the fringes of Kusari, it was only a matter of time before the venerable Nagumo was defeated again.



With the push into Kyushu by the Imperial fleets, the Nagumo wound up face to face with the far more modern Nagasaki. Despite the technological disadvantage, the captain of the Nagumo chose to order the Exiles to surrender rather than opening fire, forgoing an opportunity to land the first crucial shot. The engagement ended inconclusively after the Republican battlecruiser Akatsuki refused to fire on their own brethren, defecting to the Imperial forces shortly after the battle.
