Natori is the standard "Fleet of Fog"'s light cruiser for the Oriental fleets. She is based on the the WWII Nagara-class light cruiser.

Light cruiser NatoriEdit

Light cruiser Natori is the "Fleet of Fog" reincarnation of the WWII Nagara-class light cruiser. Two of her sisters, Nagara and Yura have made appearances in the series.

She is a rather powerful and quite versatile vessel, capable of single-handedly taking on whatever small groups of ships humanity still has. However, when compared to other "Fleet of Fog" ships and submarines, she is not all that powerful.

Natori - much like the name-ship of her class - is armed with six 123mm Photon cannons on 3 active turrets, 12 underwater torpedo tubes, 3 high-angle lasers, a number of missile launcher modules, and with a close-combat system. In addition, the Wave-Force armor allows to simply ram through human vessels without suffering any noticeable damage.

She is also equipped with a moderately-powerful Wave-Force armor that will protect her from conventional weapons, but will likely fail when faced with Corrosive Warhead Torpedoes or even more powerful weapons from the "Fleet of Fog" arsenal. Furthermore, being a Nagara-class light cruiser, she is relatively slow and is unable to dive underwater. Her Union core is not powerful enough to sustain a Mental Model by itself.


Natori and her sister Yura were accompanying fast battleship Hiei at Midway, where she intercepted I-401.
