Synopsis: The design of four-member Japanese Takao-class heavy cruisers built between 1927–1928 was based on earlier Myōkō-class heavy cruisers. The Takao-class was better armored and equipped including the main artillery being modified to engage air targets. The Takao-class had a distinctive look thanks to the massive superstructure and the first chimney being inclined towards the second one which was set vertically. Only the lead ship of her class, i.e. Takao survived the war and was scrapped in 1946. The latest volume of the Super Drawings in 3D series harvests many years of Janusz Skulski's work who is considered the world's best Imperial Japanese Navy expert. Takao renders by Waldemar Góralski include the majority of adjustments made by Janusz Skulski and depict Takao in the camouflage pattern form the last days of the World War II.

Book Description Softback, 92 pp, Illustrated 3D colour artwork, close-up views, photographs, scale line drawings Takao was the first of four Takao-class heavy cruisers designed to be an improvement over the previous My k -class design. The My k had proved to be unstable and required modifications, which were incorporated into the Takao design.The Takao-class ships were approved under the 1927 fiscal year budget as part of the Imperial Japanese Navy's strategy of the Decisive Battle, forming the backbone of a multipurpose long-range strike force. Takao was built by the Yokosuka Naval shipyards, and like her sister ships, was named after a mountain.Launched on 12 May 1930 at the Yokosuka Navy Yard and commissioned on 31 May 1932, she was the lead ship of her class, assigned to the Pacific from the start of the war. In early 1942, Takao operated in the Java Sea in operations culminating in the Battle of the Java Sea in early March, when one of Takao's floatplanes bombed the Dutch merchant ship Enggano. The next night, Takao and Atago overtook the old United States Navy destroyer Pillsbury and sank her with no survivors. Throughout the rest of the war she was involved in various Pacific campaigns against the Allies. Seller Inventory # 25628
