Anatomy of the Ship - Heavy Cruiser Takao


The Anatomy of the Ship series of books are comprehensive treatments of the design and construction of individual ships. They have been published by Conway Maritime Press since the 1980s, and republished in the US by the Naval Institute Press............

When they entered service with the Imperial Japanese Navy in 1932, the four ships of the Takao-class, Takao, Atago, Maya, and Chokai, were probably the most powerful heavy cruisers in the world. Mounting 10 8-inch guns along with 16 (later 24) of the devastating "Long Lance" torpedoes, and with a top speed of 35 knots, the Takao class were more than a match compared to their foreign contemporaries.

Takao herself had a long, rather interesting career. Having participated in almost every major campaign of the Second World War, Takao was almost sunk by two torpedoes fired from the submarine Darter during the Battle of Leyte Gulf. Towed to Singapore, she was deemed too heavily damaged to be repaired, and spent the rest of the war as a floating anti-aircraft battery. Takao was further damaged by limpet mines laid by British commandos on July 31, 1945. After the war, the Allied occupation forces used Takao as a communication, repair, and accommodation base, eventually scuttling the ship in the Malacca Straight on October 27, 1946.

Originally published in 1994 and republished in 2004, The Heavy Cruiser Takao is divided into three main sections and follows the same format as the other books in the Anatomy of the Ship series. The 2004 reprint has a plan and profile of the ship as built on the inside of the cover. The first section is a 17 page text introduction covering a large number of topics related to Takao's life and design, including a full chronology of the ship's history. No less than 28 tables are included in this section, showing the specifications of the floatplanes, guns, and torpedoes, weight distribution statistics, hull characteristics, stability data, and information on searchlights and radars, machinery, armor layout, fire control installations, and hull design. The second section features 48 photographs of the ship fitting out, undergoing refits and trials, and "in action." Many of these photographs are murky and show their age, but since they're so rare I really can't complain.
