This page is a listing of a number of historical naval formations containing ships that appear in KanColle. Note that many of these formations had multiple 'generations', that ships were often part of multiple formations at a time, and that accurate historical records of these units are very difficult to ascertain. Multiple reorganizations occurred over the course of the war as losses took their toll.

Battle Squadrons[edit | edit source]

In Japanese, there is no distinction drawn between Battleship and Cruiser divisions, they are simply called "squadrons" (sentai).

English Name Japanese  Unit Members
First Battleship Division : BatDiv 1


Nagato (Flagship), Mutsu, Later: Yamato (Flagship), Musashi
Second Battleship Division: BatDiv 2 第二戦隊 Ise (Flagship), Hyuuga, Yamashiro, Fusou

Carrier Divisions[edit | edit source]

The Carrier Divisions (Koukuu sentai) were part of a different fleet system than the Battlegroups and Torpedo Squadrons, though they often had Destroyer Divisions attached to them to act as escorts.  The japanese names of the Carrier divisions are often shortened by the shipgirls, for instance 第一航空戦隊, "Dai-ichi Koukuu Sentai" is shortened to 一航戦, "Ikkousen".  In most translations, this is written as abbreviating "First Carrier Division" to "CarDiv1."

Torpedo Squadrons[edit | edit source]

Torpedo Squadrons (Suirai sentai) and their sub-components, Destroyer Divisions (Kuchikutai), were created as part of the Japanese plan to slowly wear down American forces as they came across the Pacific with superior night-fighting and long-range torpedo bombardment tactics. They were led by a single Light Cruiser flagship supervising a number of Destroyer Divisions. Destroyer Divisions who have no members implemented in KanColle are not mentioned. Some sources translate 'Torpedo Squadron' as 'Destroyer Squadron', it is this that is abbreviated to 'Desron'

Submarine Squadrons[edit | edit source]

Because there were many, many Submarines and Submarine Tenders which are not represented in Kancolle, this section is a bit sparse.  It is included primarily to show the ships that were part of any Submarine Squadrons or Submarine Divisions.

English Name Unit Members
First Submarine Squadron: Subron 1 Second Submarine Division: I-19
Third Submarine Squadron: Subron 3 Taigei (Flagship), Third Submarine Division: I-8 (Flagship), Twelfth Submarine Division: I-168
Fourth Submarine Squadron: Subron 4 Kinu (Flagship)

Fleets[edit | edit source]

The IJN had a number of different 'Fleet' units of varying purposes and sizes.  They were primarily administrative formations rather than combat formations.  All were considered part of the "Combined Fleet", which was the primary administrative unit of the IJN.  It is included separately to show the ships and units that were directly attached to it.

Battle Participants [in progress][edit | edit source]

The main battles of the war and the ships that too part.

Ships in red = sunk/scuttled/abandoned, while ships in orange = heavily damaged/fighting ability impaired. (Raised) refers to the ship being refloated and repaired.

For consistency Axis ships appear as the top listing and Allies below. Generally speaking ships appear roughly in size/class order with the flagship first, no set order beyond that.

Aeroplane count is listed seperately from fleets and includes land and carrier planes where appropriate (scout/float planes not specified), generally sourced from Wiki for consistency's sake. However as a result take these numbers with a pinch of salt, as they may be incorrect or not match up, and in some cases have been approximated by me by logical assumption. Late war Japanese aircraft losses are extra heavy because of Kamikaze attacks and poor training. Note  ~ means approximately, + means the number given is a minimum.

For simplicity main sources are Wikipedia and, with some books used as reference.

Submarine Successes [in progress][edit | edit source]

To include all individual submarine actions in the battles section would be far too space consuming, however there are notable actions that are of interest or relevant to the girls in game. Unless otherwise notable only major warship attacks shall be listed (eg. Destroyer or larger). Crippling refers to a ship being out of action for significant time.

A couple of these have already been represented in the battles list, but are easy to re-produce here for clearer reference.

Not in definitive chronological order, but roughly correct.
