Artificially coloured, this relatively unknown picture gives a good impression of the scale of 71000 ton, 18 in Japanese super-battleship Yamato - together with her sister Musashi, the largest such vessels ever built by a significant margin.  Musashi was sunk in October 1944 and Yamato in April 1945, both by sustained air attack.

Oct 12, 1946. Heavy cruiser IJNS AOBA [one of the ships that destroyed HMAS CANBERRA] on the bottom of Kure Harbour.HMAS CANBERRA [I] was the first ship lost, wrecked without being able to return fire. The American cruisers USS QUINCY, VINCENNES and ASTORIA were sunk soon after , as Mikawa's force sped down 'The Slot,' raking the confused and disordered Allied forces as it did so. The Battle of Savo Island was a costly avoidable disaster which is still controversial.
