Chokai from the right

Chokai from the right
Here we see the Takao class cruiser Chokai, seen from the right. This view shows her massive bridge structure, and the unusual arrangement of funnels with the first funnel sloping backwards. At the front one of her main turrets is hidden under a shelter, but the second is visible. Quite a few secondary guns can be seen, as can the spotter plane and associated crane towards the stern.
