Atago
I'm Atago, Admiral, please remember it, okay?
~ Atago

Atago (愛宕?) was one of four Takao-class heavy cruisers, designed to be an improvement over the previous Myōkō-class design. These ships were fast, powerful, and heavily armed. The Takao-class ships were approved under the 1927 fiscal year budget as part of the Imperial Japanese Navy's strategy of the Decisive Battle, and would form the backbone of a multipurpose long range strike force. Atago was built by the Kure Naval shipyards near Hiroshima, and - like all heavy cruisers - was named after a mountain: in this case Mount Atago, located outside Kyoto.

Appearance

Atago has long blonde hair and large breasts. Like Takao, she wears a blue beret, blue uniform, and black gloves.

Personality

She is a Genki Girl who is often seen giggling and is notorious for her big fuel tanks. She shouts "pan-pa-ka-paaan!" when changing equipment.

Trivia

  • Torpedoed by American submarines, 23 October 1944
  • Originally, Takao and Atago's names were reserved for two ships of the Amagi-class. Battlecruisers, had the Washington Naval Treaty not be conceived Takao and Atago would be sister ships of Akagi.
