Because of the unique style of MOGAMI, it has been a popular subject for those who are big fans of sailng vessels. The first fleet of Mogami, as popular as Takao, another famous Japanese heavy cruiser, has finally appeared in SUPER ILLUSTRATOR. It explains in great detail the three generations of MOGAMI, from the very first built model, loaded with an 8 inch twin gun turret, to the final change of MOGAMI - an aviation cruiser - with plentiful illustrations of Okamoto Hotsukasa.

The Japanese Navy had been restricted in building the heavy cruisers in accordance with two rounds of disarmament conferences, the Washington Naval Treaty, after the WWI. Consequently, the Japanese Navy had started building the 4th generation of MOGAMI (the light cruiser), with the standard displacement of 8,500 tons and mounted with 6.1 inch guns in five triple turrets.

This book will tell you the whole story of MOGAMI including development, changes, and history - including the battle of Midway -with 130 illustrations.

From the Division View: the entire pictures of MOGAMI/Deck fittings/ smokestack/ erection of bridge/ foremast & mizzenmast/ deck of machine gun/ the stern of bridge/ cannons attack/torpedo tube/ before fire control system, optical instruments/ pinnace/ shipborne plan/ detail drawings of each erection of the first, second, & third generation of MOGAMI.
