The 1941 Type A Heavy Cruiser, was an attempt by Japanese ship makers to construct a Heavy Cruiser fit for leading cruiser divisions in the Decisive Battle Strategy under the Sixth Naval Armaments Supplement Program. In the strategy, these cruisers would have formed the backbone of torpedo flotillas during expeditions, and the triple mount 20.3cm guns would have been the heaviest armament on a Heavy Cruiser for that time. It was never built though. In total, 8 ships were planned to be built in an Ibuki-style lay out. However, due to lack of funding or interest from the Imperial Government coupled with the threat of war with America, the project was scrapped along with the supplement program in 1941.
The file contains the unit and pcx files. Model is not my own creation. Wyrmshadow helped with the animation files. I merely put the pieces together and cleaned up the model for CivIII and added some what if pieces. A big thanks to everyone that helped out!
