Midships detail of 18 in Japanese super-battleship Yamato: at well over 70000 tons she and sister Musashi were much the largest battleships ever built. Both were lost to sustained air attacks late in WW2: definitively the end of the 'big gun' era.

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.
