The Takao-class cruisers (高雄型) were a class of four heavy cruisers of the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) launched between May 1930 and April 1931. They all served during World War II. The Takao class was an evolution from the preceding Myōkō class, with heavier torpedo armament and a large, almost battleship-like bridge structure.
