The Amagi-class battlecruisers were part of the Imperial Japanese Navy's Eight-Eight Fleet plan. Following the restrictions of the 1922 Washington Naval Treaty, two of the ships, Amagi and Akagi, were to be reconstructed as aircraft carriers. Amagi was scrapped after sustaining heavy damage during an earthquake, but Akagi was successfully reconstructed as an aircraft carrier. Akagi went on to serve in the IJN's dreaded Kido Butai and was ultimately sunk during the Battle of Midway in 1942.

In-game, Amagi essentially is an up-gunned version of the Nagato-class battleship, equipped with the same 16"/45 3rd Year Type guns, but with one extra turret.
