Bow view of IJN Mutsu

The ship was lost due to a massive internal explosion, probably a main magazine, on 8 June 1943. The cause of the accident is not known for certain, but one theory is that it was a result of a fire set by one or more disaffected crewmen!!

Japanese battleship Ise under air attack at Kure in July 1945 - she sank in shallow water. Built in the dreadnought era, together with sister Hyuga she was converted in late 1942 / early 1943 via removal of her stern turrets to a stopgap semi-carrier after the disastrous losses at Midway. By the end of the war it was shortage of aircraft, pilots and fuel as much as actual carriers that proved fatal
