Nagato class' 2nd ship and from there (referring to her name), Mutsu. Of course, I'm part of the world's big 7. Ehh? The gunpowder explosion accident? Well, can't cover it up anymore right? This time will be fine!

Note: (Mutsu was named after the Mutsu province and was part of the big 7 battleships, hence her introduction. She was sunk when a fire in her third gun turret caused an explosion. The Japanese covered the explosion up to prevent loss of morale, hence her lines here.)

Japanese battleship Mutsu

        Mutsu (陸奥?), named after Mutsu Province, was a dreadnought battleship built for the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) at the end of World War I. She was the second ship of the Nagato class. In 1923, a year after commissioning, she carried supplies for the survivors of the Great Kantō earthquake. The ship was modernized in 1934–36 with improvements to her armor and machinery, and a rebuilt superstructure in the pagoda mast style.

        Other than participating in the Battle of Midway and the Battle of the Eastern Solomons in 1942, where she did not see any significant combat, Mutsu spent most of the first year of the Pacific War in training. She returned to Japan in early 1943. That June, one of her aft magazines detonated while she was at anchor, sinking the ship with the loss of 1,121 of the 1,474 crew and visitors. The majority of the casualties died not from drowning, but from the explosion.

        The IJN conducted a perfunctory investigation into the cause of her loss and concluded that it was not of natural causes. Due to the deaths of most of the people on the ship, however, while many possible causes were raised, to this day the real cause of the explosion is not yet known.

        The navy dispersed the survivors in an attempt to conceal the sinking in the interest of morale in Japan, continuing even to pay the salaries of the dead men. Much of the wreck was salvaged after the war and many artifacts and relics are on display in Japan.


Trivia
  • She formerly had the lowest luck among all ships (before Taihou was added) as she sank without experiencing real battles, due to an explosion of her 3rd turret in summer 1943.
  • She is compared to a snail and slug due to her horn-like headgear. Nagato's similar headgear is more back-swept, probably sparing her from similar nicknames.
  • She is named after Mutsu province, today's Aomori prefecture and part of Iwate prefecture.
  • She was sunk by an internal explosion on 8 June 1943.
