After a long time without seeing any new Japanese cruiser (unless you are counting the ARP ships) a new ship is entering the Supertest. Ladies and Gentlemen, here is Yahagi.
The Yahagi is the third ship of the Japanese Agano-class of light cruisers. The class was built between 1940 and 1944 and consisted of four ships. The Agano, the Noshiro, the Yahagi and the Sakawa. While the 3 first ships participated in multiple operations during the Second World War, Sakawa due to fuel shortages never left Japanese waters. She turned out to be the only ship of the class surviving the war to be, in the end, used as test target in the nuclear testing at Bikini Atoll in 1946.
