A piece done during free time as a practice.
Base on the battle off Samar during World War II
when the destroyer USS Johnston lead the
counterattack against superior forces.
She just struck the Japanese Crusier IJN Kumano
with a torpedo that took off the bow of the ship,
before getting hit by the battleships Yamato and
She fought on with her captain issuing command from the rear bridge after the shells from Yamato wrecked the bridge
Major edits after some critcs, tried to make the scene more exciting and more details.
Increased the details on Johnston after getting quite a number of photo referances on the Fletcher class destroyers.
Throw in some of the Avenger Torpedos bombers (minus their torpedos) that also took part in the battle plus flaks in the sky. And the battleship Yamato in the far background.
