  • Mogami (最上) was the lead ship in the four-vessel Mogami class of heavy cruisers in the Imperial Japanese Navy. She was named after the Mogami River in Tōhoku region of Japan.
  • From 25 August, 1944, Mogami returned to Japan, and underwent a major conversion at Sasebo Naval Arsenal to an aircraft cruiser to improve the fleet's reconnaissance capabilities. Her No. 4 turret and the damaged No. 5 turret were removed and her aft magazines modified to serve as gasoline tanks and munitions storage. Her aft deck was extended and fitted with a rail system to accommodate the planned stowage of 11 Aichi E16A Zuiun (Paul) reconnaissance floatplanes.
  • Mogami served in numerous combat engagements in World War II (The Battle of Sunda Strait; Indian Ocean Raids; Battle of Midway; Battle of the Philippine Sea), until she was sunk at the Battle of Leyte Gulf in October 1944.
