Huh, I figured they'd assemble the array as a unit then bolt the whole thing to the hull. Wiring up all the hydrophones must be a pain.

I hadn't noticed the casing on the keel before, odd. We should be able to see torpedo tubes from that view as well, I wonder when they're fitted during construction?

Anyone know any good books on WWII ships? I'm looking for more technically oriented books, but the normal "history of X" will suffice.

I don’t have any books from anyone; I’m looking to start collecting. I’ll look into Norman Friedman, though.

Norman Friedman is the Hunnicutt of naval technology books. Every single book he's published is A. The gold standard of books on that topic and B. Worth every penny.

As he is still alive at this time, I unironically reccommend buying his books even if there is a PDF available, as he deserves every penny he gets from it.

He's a great place to start, you can find many of his books on PDF if you poke around too.

I see another author coming up too: Janusz Skulski? Seems to make a lot of Imperial Japanese books. Worth looking into?

I bought mine. You get what you pay for with the pdfs cause they are readable but the illustrations suck.  

 

It is a huge chunk of change to buy all of them as books but worth the money if you have it.
