The Fuso-class (Fusou-Class as an alternate) dreadnought battleships were the first capital ships to be built entirely with Japanese technology. Boasting 12 main guns mounted in an unusual 2-1-1-2 pattern, the Fuso-class was also known for its distinctive pagoda bridge structure, stretching 40 metres above the waterline. During their reconstruction, the Fuso was significantly modified, with her No. 3 turret now facing forward. Both the Fuso and Yamashiro were slated to be converted into aviation battleships much like the Ise-class battleships Ise and Hyuga, but due to wartime constraints, the plan was eventually abandoned. Both ships were sunk in the Battle of the Surigao Strait.

The in-game incarnation of the Fuso-class battleships represents the Fuso specifically. Yamashiro's bridge had a different appearance, and her No. 3 Turret faced backwards, similar to her pre-modernisation form.
