Item Description

The Suzuya was constructed as the third light cruiser of the Mogami series. But while still under construction, the London Treaty lost its validity and the Suzuya was remodeled immediately after completion. The remodeled Suzuya was mounted with ten 20cm double guns replacing the former fifteen 15.5cm triple guns and began its new life as a heavy cruiser. At the outbreak of the Pacific War, the Suzuya participated in the capture operation of the Malay Penninsula. It also took part in the famous Midway Sea Battle together with three others of its type- the Mogami, the Mikuma and the Kumano. It was active in many other battles before finally meeting its fate during the sea battle off the Samar Island on October 25, 1944, where it erupted in flames after sustaining severe damage from enemy attack planes launched from a U.S. Escort Carrier. The Suzuya was then torpedoed and sunk by a friendly destroyer.
