The Kongō-class, dating from 1912, was rebuilt between 1927 and 1931 and was thereafter re-rated as a battleship. Armed with eight 14-inch guns in dual turrets and a secondary battery of sixteen 6-inch guns, the Kongō was further rebuilt in the late 1930s. Hiei and Kirishima were lost off Guadalcanal; Hiei was disabled after taking fifty or more hits from 8 inch and smaller shells, and finally sunk by air-launched torpedoes. Kirishima was shattered by battleship gunfire, while Kongō was torpedoed by a submarine, and Haruna sunk by an air raid on Kure.
