Hey all, some time ago I found a series of quite interesting paper designs in the online Hiraga archive- a collection of documents regarding warships and warship design mostly associated with one of the more prolific nautical engineers in Japan in the early 20th century. Below I'll post a number of the images from the archive for those interested. First up is the Design B39, which was one of the designs that lead up to Kongo as I recall it. In the same series of designs we have the B41, which is quite similar to the ship "Myogi" seen in World of Warships, though she has 305mm guns instead of 356mm guns. Following that there were a series of pre-designs for what would become Amagi. While there are more designs in the series, below I'll be posting mostly ones from B-61 to B-63. For these, I also have some images of the data charts as well, which may be of interest.
