Mogami was the lead ship of her class, which consisted of four heavy cruisers which served in the Imperial Japanese Navy. These were exceptionally large for light cruisers, but were constructed in such a manner as to obey the Washington Naval Treaty of 1922, but could easily be refitted as heavy cruisers by refitting their batteries with twin 8-inch guns. This was completed in 1937.

Mogami served in several engagements during the war, notably at the Battle of Sundra Strait and the Battle of Midway. She met her fate at the Battle of the Surigao Strait on 15th October 1944, where was shelled by USS Portland, collided with a friendly vessel, Nachi, and was subsequently attacked by 17 Avenger torpedo-bombers. It was not long after that, adrift, her crew abandoned her and the ship was scuttled.
