Vice Admiral Sentaro Omori's Task Force by U-Joe Vice Admiral Sentaro Omori's Task Force by U-Joe
After Guadalcanal had fallen, US forces advanced north along Solomons and finally landed their forces on Bougainville at Cape Torokina on 1 November 1943. Japanese HQ realized, that after loss of this island there will be breach in their defence perimeter, and US forces will use it to reach Rabaul and even Truk. In order to prevent it, several transports with landing force were sent from Rabaul. They were escorted by the squadron under the command of Vice Admiral Sentaro Omori ([link]) on the flagship Myoko. He was the teacher in torpedo school, and he had never taken part in serious actions before. After the squadron was noticed by american recon plane, Omori ordered transports to turn back to Rabaul, while squadron continued the advance. After that on 2 November during the night fight US ships wrecked Sendai. During maneuvering Samidare collided with Shiratsuyu, and Myoko collided with Hatsukaze. Japanese forces withdrew without any sufficient success, and US ships finished off Sendai and Hatsukaze. It was the end of Battle of Empress Augusta Bay.

Here you can see the participated IJN ships' names: [link]
Agano was the head ship of her class. I've drawn another ship from Agano class before: [link]
Also I drew Hatsukaze: [link]

Great Joe....My only suggestion is that the Main ship should be bigger

Thank you.
I did it not so big because of distance between the columns. It should look even smaller (more far), but I sacrificed the realism for benefit of expressiveness.

Great drawing as usual :D
Maybe the Myoko looks a bit small? The Aft turrets are hardly seen

Thanks.
No, it is because Myoko is placed not under at an angle of 90 degrees to spectator. That's why Aft turrets are 'hiding' behind the structures and visible length of the ship is reduced.
