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.
