The Kongō-class battlecruiser (金剛型) was a class of four battlecruisers built for the Imperial Japanese Navy immediately before World War I. Designed by British naval architect George Thurston, the lead ship of the class, Kongō, was the last Japanese capital ship constructed outside Japan, by Vickers at Barrow-in-Furness. Her sister ships, Haruna, Kirishima and Hiei, were all completed in Japan. The Kongō-class battleships were the most active capital ships of the Japanese Navy during World War II, participating in most major engagements of the war.
