The former Japanese battleship Nagato after the BAKER blast. Despised by the sailors at Bikini for its role as flagship of the Pearl Harbor attack force, mines had been strapped to her sides to facilitate her sinking. Both blasts damaged, but did not immediately sink the battleship, although BAKER caused the slow but continuous flooding that produced the list seen in this view.
